50 Quick Ways to Use Scaffolding and Modelling presents you with a compendium of strategies, activities and techniques you can use to differentiate your lessons, personalise learning and help all learners make excellent progress - and enjoy themselves while they do. The book looks at two of the most important tools in the toolkit of any teacher. Scaffolding is examined first. Entries 1 - 30 explore the concept, giving a wide range of practical examples of how you can include more of it in your lessons and explaining what impact this is likely to have. Entries 31 - 50 focus on modelling. Again, the emphasis is on classroom practice and on providing ideas you can quickly and easily implement. Scaffolding is all the things you do to help students get to grips with a task, activity or idea. It is the support you provide which scaffolds the learning; that extra bit of help students need to make progress and successfully engage with what you have planned. Modelling is where we model something for students - be that thinking, how to complete an activity or how to answer a particular question type. In one sense, modelling is a type of scaffolding. But it is worth considering separately because of the breadth of potential strategies and teacher actions it covers. All in all, this is a book any teacher who wants to develop their practice, finesse their interactions with students, and help learners maximise their potential needs on their shelf. The ideas presented can be used across the Key Stages and throughout the curriculum. So dip in and see what you discover.
