Scaffolding refers to any support system that enables students to succeed with tasks they find genuinely challenging. The goals of scaffolding include helping other students be clear about the task's purpose and directions and helping students stay focused, meet the expectations for quality of work, find and use appropriate sources of information, and work effectively and efficiently in order to grow and succeed (Tomlinson & Strickland, p. 356).
