Vocabulary Instruction

As teachers, we know that students come to us from a variety of backgrounds.  Some children have limited vocabularies and some have well developed ones.  Vocabulary instruction is essential for all students, not just English Language Learners, because all students are academic language learners.  This slideshare presentation looks at research supported vocabulary instructional methods as well as what the Common Core requires students to be able to do.  I created the accompanying brochure to guide teachers as they think about where to begin and what methods to use.
