For each situation below, say how the adult has used scaffolding.
1.Mr. Nellis noticed that Susan did not know how to approach children to play with them. She pushed her way into groups. He did a couple of things to try to help her. First, he did an one-on-one activity with her in which he used a puppet to illustrate how the puppet should approach a group of children when she wanted to play with them. Then, he let her use the puppet that entered the group so well (she practiced). The next day, he reminded her about how to enter a group and then encouraged her to try her new skill with real children. He stayed nearby to give on-the-spot guidance.
