Course Description

Vocabulary is a significant predictor of overall reading comprehension, but teaching vocabulary as an isolated skill undermines the ways students use language to learn and communicate. This workshop will explore the various paths that foster word awareness, word consciousness, and that help students become word savvy. You'll discuss current issues and trends; look at the habits and dispositions of students who are proficient word-solvers; and discuss ways to use expository text genres and literature to develop students' complex language skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. You will obtain ideas that will enhance teaching beyond isolated vocabulary instruction and across disciplines.
