How can we teach vocabulary in meaningful ways that connect to the curriculum and to students’ lives? Learning vocabulary is more than looking up words in the dictionary and writing them in a sentence. It requires making connections and engaging in critical thinking about words. This Web seminar is part of an ongoing series on teaching English language learners that highlights specific research-based strategies you can put into practice tomorrow. Participants will explore key considerations in selecting words to teach, ways to integrate vocabulary learning into daily lessons across the content areas, and have the opportunity to practice instructional strategies that work for students of all ages. This interactive web seminar will present sample lessons, links to online resources, and ideas for assessment. 

In this hour you will learn:

  • Key considerations in selecting words to teach
  • Ways to integrate vocabulary learning into daily lessons across the content areas
  • Instructional strategies that work for students of all ages
  • How to put these ideas into place with sample lessons
  • Online resources
  • Ideas for assessment
Note: Due to the online nature of this product, purchases are nonrefundable.
