This session is designed to train teachers in Implicit Vocabulary Instruction. Implicit Vocabulary Instruction is the teaching of important and useful words during reading to expand students’ word knowledge and support text comprehension. It is one component of a two-part approach with Explicit Vocabulary Instruction to achieve both breadth and depth of vocabulary knowledge.
Through analysis of master teachers’ techniques and deep practice, participants in the session will develop understanding and strengthen skills with:
- How to select and define words worthy of instructional attention in the midst of reading
- How to prioritize and reinforce words based upon their importance, with minimal interruption to the text
- How to support students’ ability to use new words and reinforce their understanding of a text by practicing words in context
Our goal is for you to save time planning a high-quality PD session and dive deep into the small concrete actions that advance your teachers’ skills from good to great. The Plug and Play provides you with:
✓ A fully customizable PowerPoint presentation with embedded videos of Implicit Vocabulary in action
✓ Facilitator notes for what to say and do for each slide
✓ 8 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
✓ Carefully designed practice activities
✓ Feedback Cheat Sheets—prioritized success points for coaching teachers on
✓ Participant Handouts for interactive note taking
✓ Next steps to ensure what’s learned in the session carries over to classrooms
