This strategy-rich workshop for teachers in grades 2-12 is all about helping students improve comprehension by developing a deep understanding of core academic vocabulary. No more is vocabulary instruction about rote memorization. Now the emphasis is on providing students with multiple exposures to key terms so that they truly “own” content-area words. This workshop will unveil current research on teaching vocabulary while tying these findings to dozens of instructional strategies that are both practical and engaging.
