The number of English learners attending public schools has increased. These students must achieve high levels of English vocabulary. Morphological awareness across languages has been described as an evidence-based, word-learning strategy for English learners. Participants learn an explicit manner for teaching morphological awareness to English learners. A cross-linguistic routine is modeled and practiced. Strategies for developing multiple opportunities for students to practice, master, and apply these concepts are also discussed.
