      With regards to scaffolding strategies, I find that modeling and graphic organizers are very good for comprehension.  When looking at multi-modal approaches, there is always a benefit to using a combination of text and images to increase understanding. The mind distinguishes more in the visual cortex as visual memory.  As such, the more visual educators make learning, the greater the amount of subject matter that can be memorized and retained.  Mayer's Theory of Multimedia Learning and Paivio's Dual Coding Theory are great theory on this.
