What's the Same? What's Different?: CORE Leadership Summit 2009

Freddy presented at the CORE Leadership Summit 2009, entitled Achieving Excellence: Raising the Ceiling and Closing the Gaps.

What’s the Same? What’s Different? English has approximately 600,000 different words. Which of these words should be taught in schools and how should they be taught? This session addresses the content and strategies of 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.
