An Explicit and Systematic Approach to Vocabulary Instruction – Summarizing findings by Stahl and Kapinus (2001), good vocabulary instruction helps children gain ownership of words when provided with multiple exposures through rich and varied activities. During this session, participants will learn about the research for explicit vocabulary instruction, explore evidence-based strategies and routines, and learn about standards-aligned resources to implement in the classroom.
