English has approximately 600,000 different words. Which of these words should be taught in schools and how should they be taught? The session addresses the content and strategies of fluency and vocabulary instruction that supports high levels of comprehension. In particular, differences in the words that are taught—and the way in which they are taught—in stories and in content-area texts will be emphasized.
