  1. Describe how scaffolding can be used effectively in a secondary English classroom. Elaborate your answer with ten classroom examples.(10+10=20 Marks)

Solution:

The term “scaffolding” refers to questions, prompts and nonverbal communication enabling learners to complete tasks which they could not have managed on their own. Children internalise the learning from this interaction and become more independently competent in the future. The aspect of private speech has been regularly noted in naturalistic studies of the child SLA; however, their significance has been variously interpreted. In vygotskyan perspective, it provides evidence about the role of language in problem solving, self-regulation, and appropriation. Early studies of private speech worked with data elicited from older learners in semi-controlled settings while one of the earliest studies to apply vygotskyan theory to SLL was critical of schema theories of narrative and information processing models of communication.

Three main types of second language private speeches were identified by ohta (2001), repetition vicarious responses and manipulation.

Vygotskyan theories of SLL are generally critical of transmission models of communication, input and interactional models of language learning in which negotiation of meaning is central. Activity theory strongly argues for the distinctive nature of individual interactions as experienced by the participants.

According to it, individuals’ personal goals, entry level of knowledge, and skill may as well as being subject to change in course of the task itself.

Benefits of Instructional scaffolding:

  • Challenges students through deep learning and discovery.
  • Engages students in meaningful and dynamic discussions in small and large classes.
  • Motivates learners to become better students.
  • Increases the likelihood for students to meet instructional objectives.

Ten classroom Examples:

  1. By giving mini-lessons.
  2. Describing concepts in multiple ways.
  3. Incorporate visual aids.
  4. Give student talk time.
  5. Give students time to practice.
  6. Model / Demonstrate.
  7. During lessons, check for understanding.
  8. Active prior knowledge.
  9. Front load concept specific vocabulary.
  10. Set them up for success.
