T36 - How’s Your Lexicon? Developing Vocabulary in Social Studies

Oct 25, 2018 4:45pm ‐ Oct 25, 2018 5:45pm


Description

Textbook glossaries and flashcards are insufficient for students to assimilate content-specific vocabulary, especially for students with dyslexia or other language difficulties. Explore ways to review and expand vocabulary through structured presentations, templates, and kinesthetic activities. Bring a word list to create your own classroom-ready activities.

Learning Objective:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Discover the complexity of vocabulary knowledge and its important role in reading and reading intervention.

Speaker(s):

  • Bruce J. Miller, M.A., M.S.Ed., Social Studies Department Head, Landmark School
