Scaffolding activities for Young Learners

Teaching YL and Teens
Just like the temporary support that surrounds a building under construction, scaffolding in ESL is extremely important. It provides our students with the necessary help that they need while their language system is being built.

Furthermore, scaffolding enables students to perform in a task at a level that is currently beyond their present abilities, thus giving our learners a sense of real accomplishment and satisfaction and pushing their learning even further.

Scaffolding is even more crucial with Young Learners as it deals with their cognitive abilities which are being formed, social skills and all the other YL characteristics. Not to mention that it reduces their stress and increases their motivation to keep on learning.

Join this session so that we can see how we can scaffold different types of activities to better cater to our students' needs.
