Improve vocabulary instruction in your school/district. This seminar is designed to help educators develop a plan for providing explicit, systematic vocabulary instruction to improve student academic performance in the classroom and on state assessments. Key academic vocabulary correlated to common core standards in reading, language arts, math, and science are provided along with a five day instructional plan that can be implemented in a single classroom or entire school/district. Targeted words are embedded into existing lessons and taught in context. An explicit, engaged instructional approach is used to introduce words followed by the use of center activities for meaningful use/practice of words to ensure long term retention. Mastery and progress monitoring assessments are provided to monitor student learning and inform instruction.
