Accelerate Vocabulary Through Dynamic Instruction and Morphology
February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35.00
Are you having a hard time fitting strong vocabulary instruction into your day?Are you looking for the biggest return on your time investment for vocabulary growth?
Although many commercially available core reading programs include vocabulary activities, many educators admit that vocabulary is the first to go when teaching within a tight schedule. Likewise, many reading intervention programs overlook vocabulary despite its significant contribution to comprehension. Help is here!
Webinar Description: This webinar is appropriate for general education teachers, special education teachers, speech language pathologists, reading specialists, tutors, administrators, and parents. Our presenter candidly admits that, back in the day, she used to rely on “old school” strategies such as providing a lengthy definition and asking students to use the word in a sentence. Research in recent years has provided us with a number of new directions for teaching vocabulary.
In this dynamic session, you will see videos of teachers actually introducing and practicing vocabulary using Isabel Beck’s model for robust vocabulary instruction. Marianne Nice will show us what types of vocabulary words to choose for instruction, and where to find them. Marianne will also demonstrate ways to encourage generalization of new vocabulary words within oral language and writing activities. In this multi-pronged approach, our presenter will demonstrate various pieces of the puzzle that should not be overlooked:
– Teaching “tier two” vocabulary words that have a greater long-term benefit because they span across different content and communication settings
– Teaching “academic” vocabulary words that aid students in understanding and carrying out academic tasks
– Teaching morphology, involving the smallest meaningful units of sound (prefixes, roots, and suffixes)
