This workshop will combine direct and indirect instructional practices that have been identified in research as effective for building student vocabulary in any content area. Participants will engage in learning why vocabulary development is critical, how to identify key vocabulary from your content and how to teach vocabulary using a variety of instructional routines. Students benefit from a consistent approach to vocabulary instruction, as part of your instructional routines, focusing on activities that foster listening, speaking, reading and writing in English.

Additionally, we'd like to share the following professional development opportunities coming up from some of our partners:
