By looking closely at video together, we can all learn and improve our practices. In this Observation Challenge, we’re focusing on scaffolding as a strategy for moving students toward understanding a complex concept.
We hope this exercise helps you to hone your observation skills, and helps you translate and adapt what you’re learning on Teaching Channel to your own teaching practice.
