When student work on larger or final projects is disappointing, it can be too late to raise the level of student performance and actual learning.  Even with “revisions” and  paper drafts, the instructor may wonder why the student missed key aspects of the project.  Students sometimes complain, “I didn’t know what you wanted.”  Larger assignments require significant time investment by both students and instructors –we want them to be successful! However, when the time invested by students is “hidden” throughout the semester, opportunities for students  to meet our expectations are missed.  Scaffolding larger projects into well constructed smaller parts can increase levels of student learning and their time on task without “hand-holding.” Bring your assignment and syllabus to apply key features of scaffolding to larger assignment and gain colleagues’ perspectives!
