The workshop will recognize the challenges facing instructors teaching integrated reading and writing courses and demonstrate how scaffolded instruction can address those concerns. Challenges include teaching within an accelerated time frame, moving students from literal comprehension to critical thinking, and encouraging students to become more independent thinkers and writers. Scaffolded instruction leads students from less to more difficult and challenging tasks while providing them with diminishing instructional guidance
