To do a scale, stand on your base leg (to find your base leg pretend to kick something and the leg you use to kick is generally what you stand on), then you lift your back leg straight back and up. Try to keep your chest and head up and facing forward (not down). Scales don't require a lot of flexibility, but If you are having trouble with it, I would stretch my left and right splits. Also strengthening your back helps to lift your leg higher. You can do back raises (lay on your stomach and lift your chest and legs off the ground at the same time as high as you can).
