Description

All students need cognitive support to help them problem solve, answer academic questions, and access the curriculum independently. This course will look at two teaching strategies in detail ? modelling and scaffolding, and consider how teachers can coach their students to become independent learners, with specific advice for supporting Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) students in the classroom.

Learning outcomes
? You will understand different theories relevant to modelling and scaffolding, such as Albert Bandura’s social learning theory and Vygotsky?s Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD)
? You will know the different types of modelling and the importance of scaffolding and modelling, especially for students with SEND
? You will gain confidence in using these strategies successfully in the classroom

Advantages of this course
? For pupils with additional needs, they?re often not equipped with the same educational experiences as their peers. Modelling learning tasks in a simple and manageable way and providing scaffolds in lessons can increase SEND students? engagement, confidence, and independence. This course will provide a number of different practical strategies and academic readings on modelling and scaffolding to enable you to support your SEND students in the classroom.
? Websites, research, and video resources are utilised to explain modelling and scaffolding, and a good practice video demonstrates how to use a ‘think aloud’ to support problem solving
? Additional activities encourage you to reflect on the learning and underpin the knowledge you have gained
? There is also suggested extra reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
