Strategic Scaffolding in a Virtual Setting
Help students recover lost learning by meaningfully embedding concepts into your current units or modules. Join us to explore tools, tips and processes for scaffolding lost learning with new instruction for all students, including those with exceptional needs.
- Session 1 (September 16): Understanding Scaffolding Tools and Resources. Unpack a process for analyzing standards and creating scaffolding outlines to support instructional planning. Learn how to use standards-based resources to identify the essential skills, concepts and prior learning targets associated with each standard.
- Session 2 (September 23): Planning with Scaffolding in Mind. Plan engaging lessons that align new learning with just-in-time supports that help students recover lost learning! Use scaffolding outlines to plan real-time and asynchronous instructional activities and design structured interventions. Explore scaffolding activities and related tools.
- Session 3 (September 30): Safeguarding and Maintaining Rigor while Scaffolding Instruction. Evaluate tools that help you analyze the rigor of selected standards and sample lesson plans that outline learning targets and assignments. Practice using feedback protocols to identify misalignments and revise assignments to enhance their rigor.
