Scaffolding to Support the Struggling Math Student

Presenter: Laurie Ferry

Laurie Ferry will be discussing John Hattie’s model of scaffolding from his book Visible Learning for Mathematics. She will examine how prompts and cues can be used to enable students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers in the math classroom. So many students rely on their teachers to give them step by step directions on how to solve every problem. But that leads to dependent students who don’t believe they can do the math on their own. We want confident mathematicians who feel the success of ‘getting it’! By using prompting and cueing teachers can get students through a complex task without frustration and shutting down from the student.
