The bestselling Scaffolding Language, Scaffolding Learning helped tens of thousands of mainstream elementary teachers ensure that their English language learners became full members of the school community with the language and content skills they needed for success. In the highly anticipated Second Edition, Pauline Gibbons updates her classic text with a multitude of practical ideas for the classroom, supported by the latest research in the field of ELL/ESL. With clear directions and classroom tested strategies for supporting students' academic progress, Gibbons shows how the teaching of language can be integrated seamlessly with the teaching of content, and how academic achievement can be boosted without sacrificing our own vision of education to the dictates of knee-jerk accountability. Rich examples of classroom discourse illustrate exactly how the scaffolding process works, while activities to facilitate conversation and higher-level thinking put the latest research on second language learning into action.

Scaffolding fördert die Interaktion von Lerngruppen in besonderem Maße und unterstützt "sichtbares" Lernen von Fremdsprachen. Die fünfzehn praxiswirksam ausgearbeiteten Unterrichtseinheiten schlagen auf der Grundlage von "Lerngerüsten" eine Brücke zwischen dem aktuellen fremdsprachlichen Kenntnisstand und dem potentiellen Leistungsniveau der Lernenden (Zone of Proximal Development). Sie decken die Niveaus A1 bis B2+ des Gemeinsamen europäischen Referenzrahmens für Sprachen ab und sind sowohl für Schülerinnen und Schüler an Mittelstufenschulen als auch an Gymnasien geeignet. Ihre Themen umfassen Ausblicke vom Lehrwerk auf die reale Welt über Sachtexte und bilinguale Themen hin zu literarischen Texten und (außerschulischen) Lernorten. Die mehrfach erprobten Unterrichtseinheiten ermöglichen authentisches Lernen und sind eingebettet in umfassende Lernaufgaben. Scaffolding wird als dynamische Lehr- und Lernstrategie eingeführt und in einem abschliessenden Glossary methodisch begründet.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Deutsch - Pädagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1,3, Universität Hildesheim (Stiftung), Veranstaltung: Sprachsensibler Fachunterricht, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Eine Möglichkeit zur Realisierung eines sprachsensiblen Fachunterrichts bietet Pauline Gibbons mit Hilfe ihres Scaffolding-Ansatzes. Dieser Ansatz wird in der vorliegenden Arbeit näher betrachtet und es wird versucht, auf folgende Fragen eine Antwort zu bekommen: Welche Probleme tauchen bei der Aneignung einer Fachsprache von DaZ/DaF-SuS auf und welche Merkmale müssen beachtet werden, um einen sprachsensiblen Fachunterricht im Sinne des Scaffolding nach Gibbons zu konzipieren? Zunächst wird in Kapitel 2 auf die sprachlichen Varietäten eingegangen, mit denen SuS in der Institution Schule konfrontiert werden. Besonderes Augenmerk wird hier auf die sprachlichen Anforderungen an DaZ/DaF-SuS gerichtet. In Kapitel 3 wird als erstes die Alltagssprache von der Fachsprache abgegrenzt, um in einem zweiten Schritt die Merkmale der Fachsprache auf der Wort-, Satz- und Textebene herauszustellen und diese mit den Erwerbsschwierigkeiten der SuS in Beziehung zu setzen. Die Definition von Scaffolding sowie die theoretischen Grundgedanken werden im darauffolgenden Kapitel behandelt. Zudem werden hier auch Vygotskis soziale Lerntheorie und Hallidays funktionale Sprachtheorie mit einbezogen, da diese, wie aufgezeigt wird, einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Scaffolding- Ansatz nach Gibbons leisten. In Kapitel 6 werden die drei Kategorien des Scaffolding-Ansatzes genau betrachtet und Kriterien aufgestellt, mit deren Hilfe ein sprachsensibler Fachunterricht im Sinne des Scaffolding-Ansatzes nach Gibbons durchgeführt werden kann. Das darauf folgende Kapitel bietet eine Übersicht über empirische Studien, welche die Effektivität des Scaffolding belegt. Um eine Umsetzungsmöglichkeit des Scaffolding zu verdeutlichen, wird in Kapitel 7.2 eine Unterrichtsstunde für den Religionsunterricht beschrieben, welche nach den Kriterien eines sprachsensiblen Fachunterrichts im Sinne des Scaffolding kreiert wurde. Das Resümee fasst noch einmal die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse zusammen und bietet einen Ausblick über die zukünftige Entwicklung eines sprachbewussten Fachunterrichts.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) require students to engage higher level thinking skills and language use to activate their understanding of content/text. They are designed to be academically rigorous for all students, and are especially so for students who are English language learners (ELL). In ELLs: Thinking Skills and CCSS, Dr. Estee Lopez provides evidence-based instructional approaches as well as best practices for helping ELLs meet the CCSS for ELA. The six-page (tri-fold) guide is structured around the six shifts embodied in the CCSS for English Language Arts: 1. Increasing reading of informational text/balancing informational and literary texts 2. Knowledge in the disciplines 3. Staircase of complexity 4. Text-based answers 5. Writing from sources 6. Academic language The guide explains each shift, its implications for ELLs, and what is required of teachers. For each shift, the author lists best practices, examples of scaffolding for ELLs, and things that teachers and administrators must to do create conditions that ensure that ELLs succeed.
