HLP #15: Use Scaffolded Supports

“Scaffolded supports are provided to students that are either pre-planned or provided “on the spot” and then faded and/or removed once they are not needed.  A teacher, or team of teachers use data to make decisions about when the scaffolds need to be removed or kept in place.  This video, HLP 19, Use Scaffolded Supports, is divided into two parts.  Part 1 defines scaffolded supports and provides the rationale for their use.  Part 2 shows teachers using key aspects of this HLP across a range of settings” (Kennedy et al., 2021).
