Research supports that students must have many encounters with a new word if vocabulary instruction is going to have a measurable effect on comprehension. This presentation will provide you with various vocabulary activities to be used in the classroom to provide your students with multiple opportunities to acquire new vocabulary.
This document provides examples of some key research based vocabulary activities. The activities include pre-teaching unfamiliar vocabulary, semantic maps, semantic impressions, Four Square Vocabulary Map and The LINCing Routine. Each activity enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the chosen vocabulary words which should lead to a positive effect on comprehension.
The four parts of the program include fostering word consciousness, encouraging wide reading, teaching individual words, and teaching word learning strategies.This presentation describes each part, explains how to incorporate each into your classroom and create a vocabulary rich environment.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
