Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,3, Saarland University, language: English, abstract: In this paper I will deal with the topic of "Scaffolding in the EFL classroom." Scaffolding plays a crucial role in the classroom and can help to contribute to good teaching. Nevertheless, most teachers are neither aware of the huge benefits of scaffolded instruction, nor do they know anything about the concept of "scaffolding" or the strategies related to it. Even if they sometimes happen to make use of scaffolding strategies, they also often miss the opportunity to apply them when it might have been appropriate to do so. Hence, the aim of this paper is to provide theoretical as well as practical information on scaffolding and to show that and how it is used in class.
