Presented at: WIDA 2017

This interactive presentation will increase understanding of the research-based components that comprise strategic vocabulary instruction and provide practical resources for educators working with linguistically diverse students. The focus will be on fostering a motivating content and language learning environment that is rich in words, delivering strategic instruction of high-utility vocabulary, and encouraging approaches to promote students’ independent word-learning skills, such as cognate awareness and structural analysis.
