What do scientific explorations of the development of the brain reveal about literacy development in the intermediate and middle grades – specifically, vocabulary and comprehension development? Considering the instructional implications of these explorations together with those of developmental and pedagogical studies, this edWebinar addresses:

  • How brain development in students ages 8-14 supports – and in turn is supported by – effective vocabulary instruction
  • How teachers can realistically apply the most effective research-driven practices for teaching word-specific and generative vocabulary – morphological relationships and Greek and Latin word roots/affixes
  • How students’ developing understanding of the spelling system powerfully supports vocabulary development and reading in the intermediate and middle grades
  • How students’ developing vocabulary knowledge interphases with ongoing comprehension and understanding during the actual process of reading

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers of grades 3-8, literacy coaches, and curriculum leaders.
