TALK Strategies: Building Language and Vocabulary in PreK-2nd Classrooms
Monday, January 13, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Hart and Risley researched and found the 30 million word gap and now we all know the strong correlation between a child’s language skills and their future reading abilities. During this session we will dig into concrete strategies you can use every day in your classrooms to develop children's oral language & vocabulary throughout the day using the TALK Strategy developed by the Rollins Center at the Atlanta Speech School. We’ll also brainstorm where we can make time in our busy classroom schedules to TALK to children and how to make time/space for this given how pivotal language is to changing the life trajectories of our kids. The TALK Strategy can apply to children up to 8 years old, so invite your friends who teach lower elementary as well!!
