Children's Literature

Mrs. Edwards read "Owl Moon" to her class. As she read, she paused from
time to time to allow the children
time to think about the story.
She used a different voice for each
character. When she finished, she
asked questions that helped her
students understand the story better and to discuss it with her.
Mrs. Edwards exhibited:

1. scaffolding behavior
2. narrative structure
3. storytelling
4. visual literacy

If I am understanding it correctly,
wouldn't she be exhibiting scaffolding
behavior?

I don't see how the teacher is exhibiting scaffolding behavior. Here are some sites that explain the first three choices to your question.
