In the language classroom, scaffolded instruction is a necessary and valuable tool for bilingual learners who are at various levels of second language proficiency. In this institute we explore how scaffolded instruction provides multileveled supports that help students access and master curricular content while enhancing acquisition of their academic second language. We first examine areas of language that are particularly challenging for students, including vocabulary within academic discourse and the role of background knowledge in comprehension. The remainder of the institute is dedicated to engaging in hands-on scaffolding meaning-based strategies that assist in building vocabulary, increasing reading comprehension and strengthening writing skills. Book signing immediately following session.
