English teacher extraordinaire with 27 years of academic experience including: online language teaching, English-Junior high, Honors English 9, 10, 11,12, AP English Language, British Lit, French Lit

It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.
