Word Wondering: Teaching Vocabulary in Meaningful and Powerful Ways, Grades K-8 (No Cost for TMI PLC and Literacy Alliance Members)

Word Wondering: Teaching Vocabulary in Meaningful and Powerful Ways (Grades K-8) 

An Offering of the TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Literacy Alliance

The three big questions on teachers’ minds are:  Which words do I teach? How to I find the time to  explicitly address content-specific “domain” words? Which practices are proven to get learners to transfer word learning to their reading, writing, and speaking? Come discover answers, in a session designed to support high-impact vocabulary instruction. You CAN get away from  one-size-fits-all approaches and blend playful  word collecting with a systematic plan that ensure all children get the language exposure they need.  PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING: 2-4 texts they use  with students (read aloud, shared reading, or otherwise).

Audience: Grade K-8 Teachers, Administrators, Coaches, Teacher Leaders;
Instructor: Pam Koutrakos; TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Lead ELA Literacy Consultant
