Building Vocabulary F-6

Building Vocabulary F-6
Presented by ANNETTE GRAY
A broad, rich and constantly growing vocabulary is a powerful component of students’ literacy and learning success. The correlation between vocabulary knowledge and literacy success is well-established, with vocabulary responsible for up to 80% of comprehension. Successful instruction is that which has as its primary goal the understanding of new concepts, not just new words (Nagy 1988), and is context and meaning-based within the fundamental purpose of language - communication. With the ever-increasing text complexity that students are required to access there is an increased imperative for sound vocabulary development in the early years.
This course assists teachers to provide explicit vocabulary instruction for all students, particularly in the language of quality texts and ´school’ language.
Participants will:
Understand the role of vocabulary in the broader English literacy context
Understand the value of explicit teaching of vocabulary to all students
Know how to build vocabulary
