Vocabulary Learning and Instruction Within the Literate Classroom

Words represent concepts, concepts are the basis of knowledge, and knowledge is presented in texts. To fully participate with texts, students need to develop a vibrant, generative vocabulary. They also need to read widely and deeply in texts that vary in complexity and topic. Dr. Hiebert will describe how vocabulary learning can be bolstered and how the amount that students read—and learn—can be increased in classrooms.

Vocabulary Learning and Instruction Within the Literate Classroom

Elfrieda H. Hiebert

Words represent concepts, concepts are the basis of knowledge, and knowledge is presented in texts. To fully participate with texts, students need to develop a vibrant and generative vocabulary. They also need to read widely and deeply in texts that vary in complexity and topic. Dr. Hiebert will describe how vocabulary learning can be bolstered and how the amount that students read—and learn—can be increased in classrooms.

Please note there are two versions of the presentation slides available. One version has six slides per page to optimize printing (Hiebert-2014-10-02-Vocabulary-Learning-and-Instruction-handout.pdf). The other version has only one slide per page for easier readability and note-taking (Hiebert_2014-10-02_Vocabulary-Learning-and-Instruction.pdf).
