Text Complexity and English Learners - Building Vocabulary (Part 2)

Elfrieda H. Hiebert

Freddy presents an exclusive webinar for the teachers of New York City Schools.

Text complexity looms large in the Common Core State Standards and vocabulary is a critical contributor to text complexity.  In this second of a two-part series, Dr. Elfrieda (Freddy) Hiebert builds on the content of Part 1 to describe the nature of vocabulary lessons with literary texts (i.e., narrative texts and texts in magazines).  One type of vocabulary lesson addresses strategies for dealing with particular types of words (e.g., compound words, proper names).  The second type of vocabulary lesson focuses on the words in specific texts.

Information on Part 1 of the webinar is located here.

A recording of the webinar can be viewed on TextProject's channel on YouTube.

Presentation slides are now available.
