2018 Institute Theme:
The Art of Instructional Scaffolding for Student Success
Keynote: Dr. Linda Dorn | Professor, RR, PCL, & CIM Trainer, UA Little Rock

The art of instructional scaffolding refers to the degree of assistance provided by the teacher to enable the student to accomplish tasks that would otherwise be too difficult. What would this support look like in practice? How are instructional scaffolds adjusted to promote student success? The keynote session takes a closer look at the theory of scaffolding as a psychological tool that optimizes the student’s potential to learn from literacy experiences. This theme will be threaded throughout the institute. Several concurrent sessions will be offered.
