Building Vocabulary Acquisition

The goals and priorities for this course are intended for participants to build and improve vocabulary acquisition with their students. Teachers will consider how different types of words can impact student comprehension of text and will identify 8 characteristics of effective vocabulary.

Connections with the Danielson’s Framework will be integrated throughout the course with real-life, hands-on application of effective vocabulary instruction with their own students. Participants will identify and apply additional strategies that can help their students make deeper connections to text and the words within the text by creating a hands-on lesson that will be applicable in the classroom.
