When we teachers/librarians talk about scaffolding, we’re usually referring to ways in which we help students get the most from a project (as opposed to just assigning a topic and saying “ok, have fun”).
But today I’m not talking about that type of scaffold, I’m talking about the building type. The type that used to surround the shell of the Library That Burned… the type that’s no longer there!
Of course, that means that our construction may (finally) be drawing to a close, so it’s a reminder that we have to step up our planning for program, curriculum, staffing, etc.. But for now, I’m just happy that there’s no scaffolding.
