Building Knowledge Through Vocabulary Acquisition

The building blocks of complex text are facility with words and their meanings and background knowledge. The way to ensure both word knowledge and world knowledge is to increase the amount of well-designed vocabulary instruction in classrooms as well as the amount that students read. This session provides the four most critical facts about vocabulary that can transform student learning. Each fact is accompanied by an action that educators can take right now and a link to an open-access resource on the web for supporting that action.
