Tutor Series: Explicit Vocabulary Instruction and Strategies 219TS

Your knowledge of words, their meaning, and your capacity to use them plays a crucial role in understanding what you read and expressing yourself well in writing. In fact, after accounting for decoding ability, vocabulary is the most important factor in successful reading comprehension. Therefore, developing a strong vocabulary is essential if children are to become successful literacy learners. But with all the words in the English language, this can appear to be a daunting – if not impossible – task! However, effective vocabulary instruction is easily achieved. This workshop will investigate the components of effective vocabulary instruction and review a number of successful, evidence-based strategies. This session is ideal for specialist tutors and teachers providing intervention, as well as primary and secondary teachers working in the classroom.
