Abstract
Scaffolding involves a more targeted approach to teaching. Teachers tend to have challenges on arrange the instruction so that the needs of differentiated learners are addressed. The challenges of scaffolding learning is compounded by the fact that most curricular materials are designed to support teaching to the middle and do not necessarily help with those students who need extra assistance. Scaffolding is not straightforward. It needs effective work from an analytical stance by the teachers. Teachers account for what the learner has to be able to do, the learner's present abilities, the materials that will lift performance, the amount of help that will be needed, and the kind of help that will be needed so that the child can work as independently and successfully as possible.
