This workshop will highlight the importance of using explicit, multisensory strategies to bring vocabulary words to life for your students. While these strategies are essential for many dyslexic students, they are also valuable for ALL students. Plus, they can generate a lot of fun!
Join us for this workshop covering a variety of strategies to teach vocabulary. We will also go over the concept of vocabulary tiers as explained by Isabel Beck, Margaret McKeown, and Linda Kucan in Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction.
- Participants will understand the importance of vocabulary knowledge to both reading comprehension and written expression
- Participants will explore the concept of networks of meaning
- Participants will investigate the value of using visual and movement cues when teaching vocabulary
- Participants will explore the importance of using visual organizers with vocabulary development, as well as some examples of these
- Participants will understand the value of morphology in vocabulary development and explore the optimum time to teach morphology to children
Join us to explore some of the various issues students may have a low vocabulary usage and develop some exciting strategies and techniques to help reverse this tendency.

3. Will there be background noise from the other people on the line that interferes with whether or not I am able to listen to the speaker? We do everything we can to prevent this. One way is that we mute everyone while the speaker is talking.

A webinar? What is it?
In a webinar, you stay at home, or wherever you want, and you use your own computer. You log in at the specific day and time -- and then you listen and participate.
The vital aspect is that you must be preregistered. After you register here at Eventbrite, your name will be placed on the log with GotoWebinar and they will email you the instructions you need. These will contact a special log in code that you use to log in at the appropriate time. You may use a phone and/or a computer; however, the computer allows you to also see the PowerPoint Presentations. The phone or a USB microphone on your computer allows you to talk to the presenter and others.
