Teaching with Intent: Scaffolding academic language with marginalised students is a product of a PETAA Research Grant. The book presents a powerful approach to scaffolding academic language. The authors use the discipline of science to demonstrate how language is a central pedagogic tool for intentional teaching and learning. Teachers are guided through the complete process in a clear and accessible style.

The book is divided into four parts, moving from the enveloping theoretical foundations to the macro-scaffold that creates the framework for a language-focused classroom. It introduces a central pedagogic tool, the focus text, and explains how this supports the micro-scaffold, which is the language used by teachers that helps students take up powerful academic language.
