3.7 The Importance of Scaffolding in Decoding

Season #3

Have you ever had a student who struggles with blending words or over-emphasizes the strategy of letter-by-letter decoding? Or a student who segments, or pulls apart, individual sounds in words but cannot blend them to read the word? What can you do to move a student forward? 

In this episode, we discuss the importance of using diagnostic and prescriptive teaching measures when applying the appropriate scaffolds.

Tune in as we define what scaffolds are in literacy instruction, explain what diagnostic and prescriptive teaching measures look like, and share specific strategies for scaffolds in decoding!
