In this workshop, educators will:

  • Discover vocabulary ideas for engaging students in developing meaningful vocabulary
  • Reinforce the importance of vocabulary to all learners
  • Compile practical instructional ideas for vocabulary development
  • Reflect on ways to support early readers with vocabulary
