Although many commercially available core reading programs have some vocabulary activities included, many educators admit that vocabulary practice is the first to go when teaching within a tight schedule. Likewise, many reading intervention programs overlook vocabulary despite the significant contribution it makes to reading comprehension. Our presenter candidly admits that, back in the day, she used to rely on “old school” strategies such as providing a lengthy definition and asking students to use the word in a sentence. Research in recent years has provided us with a number of new directions for teaching vocabulary. Marianne Nice cannot wait to share these new science-based strategies and videos, in this webinar. 

This webinar is appropriate for general education teachers, special education teachers, speech language pathologists, reading specialists, tutors, administrators, and parents. In this dynamic session, you will see videos of teachers actually introducing and practicing vocabulary using Isabel Beck's model for robust vocabulary instruction. She will show us what types of vocabulary words to choose for instruction, and where to find them. Marianne will also demonstrate ways to encourage generalization of new vocabulary words within oral language and writing activities. In this multi-pronged approach, our presenter will demonstrate various pieces of the puzzle that should not be overlooked:

 - Teaching "tier two" vocabulary words that have a greater long-term benefit because they span across different content and communication settings

- Teaching "academic" vocabulary words that aid students in understanding and carrying out academic tasks

- Teaching morphology, involving the smallest meaningful units of sound (prefixes, roots, and suffixes)
