Scaffolding Learning during Small Group Skills Instruction
Presenters will showcase ways to offer support during Small Group Skills instruction for diverse learners. Examples of ways scaffolding techniques can be layered onto Small Group Skills activities will be demonstrated for activities in the Animals domain. With guidance from the presenter, participants will then collectively brainstorm ways in which they might scaffold one Small Group activity using a specific scaffolding technique and its dimensions. Then, participants will work independently or in small groups to adapt one Small Group activity to fit the needs of learners with diverse needs (presented as a case study).
