According to David Crystal, “Vocabulary is a matter of word building as well as word using.” This idea is certainly applicable in K-12 classrooms. Given the increased rigor of content standards and literacy expectations, how can educators build vocabulary skills at grade level that empower students across modalities and content areas? What are some best practices to contextualize language development and why is this so critical to academic success?
In this edWebinar, explore, discuss, and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches for developing academic language. Investigate the links between vocabulary and literacy development. Then, consider best practices to develop language to increase the use of purposeful and powerful academic vocabulary in the classroom and beyond.
Viewers will walk away with fresh ideas on how to scaffold grade-level vocabulary and language so that all students are successful when engaging with complex texts and conversations. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-8 teachers in New York.
