In practice, this means that the scaffold is at a 1.3-degree inclination from the base to the 500-foot mark, conforming to the sloping face of the monument.
The scaffold, which was constructed in New Jersey and brought to Washington in stages on flatbed trucks, was erected by a crew of 26 working in three teams, one crew at the top, another at the middle and the third as ground support.

Scaffolding is a variation on the technique of teaching by modeling and demonstrating a new skill.
Teachers can apply scaffolding in the classroom by reducing complex tasks to manageable steps, helping children to concentrate on one task at a time, being explicit about what is expected and interpreting the task for the student, and coaching the child using words and actions that are familiar and supportive.
Scaffolding is appropriate when the tasks are complex or the students have difficulty with the language.

Scaffolding is then discussed in terms of improving the likelihood of successfully encouraging meaningful approaches to learning in PBL students.
It is not apparent how scaffolding can bridge such perceptions, and it may be argued that the change required of the culture of student learning is so fundamentally different as to be incapable of full appreciation from within the instructivist, transmissive world-view.
It may be suggested that the facilitatory role of the tutor in PBL is essentially one of providing scaffolding, and that the relationships that have been attributed to tutors may possibly be attributable to appropriate use of scaffolding in general, with the implication that this may extrapolate to other forms of scaffolding.

Scaffolding is an instructional technique whereby the teacher models the desired learning strategy or task, then gradually shifts responsibility to the students.
In the first strategy, when a teacher suspects the child does not have the ideas or words needed for a particular text, he/she may explain some part of the story or contrast a feature presented with something he/she knows the child understands from another reading.
Another scaffolding strategy is for the teacher to model the appropriate thinking or working skills in the classroom.

To "scaffold" means to provide an external support to a child's mastery attempts, so they can master something with support that they are currently unable to master on their own.
This teacher was scaffolding the children's learning by taking them step by step through new skills with just enough support to insure the success of their mastery attempts.
(When scaffolding, a teacher provides no more help than is really necessary, and offers progressively less help as the child gains competence, until the child can perform the task independently.) She also used positive reinforcement and modeling to help them learn.
