Building Vocabulary Knowledge
Category : Whats new
Language occurs all around us therefore young learners cannot avoid picking up the language around them. Teachers can teach vocabulary effectively by using a range of approaches, strategies and ideas to improve students reading and writing. Our current work in schools is to enable teachers to understand, know and teach explicitly – about vocabulary. We use a range of research tools, suggested texts, evidence based activities and tasks proven to increase students vocabulary knowledge, and to lift reading and writing levels. Dr Alison Davis provides vocabulary tools, research and tasks via her resources available through the link.
