F2 - The Intersection of Vocabulary Learning and Syntax: A Teachable Relationship to Reading Comprehension

Oct 28, 2016 10:30am ‐ Oct 28, 2016 12:30pm

Standard: $20.00


The sentence is the linguistic environment that determines the meaning of many words, making the relationship between syntax and vocabulary important to reading comprehension. This session will explore this relationship, including words with multiple meanings, word order implications, and word functions. Instruction can capitalize on and foster this connection through a purposeful selection of words and instructional activities. Participants will learn and practice specific activities and strategies during this session.
