DescriptionThis is the SECOND of three days for Year 1 Academic Literacy Project (ALP). Please make sure you registered for our Day 1 in September before registering for this workshop.

November 15, 2023: Vocabulary + Comprehension Part 1
February 21, 2024: Comprehension Part 2 + Text Discussion

In this interactive Day 2 training, participants will learn why  and how vocabulary makes a difference in student comprehension. Engaging strategies will center around direct instruction, incidental instruction, and self teaching of vocabulary. Teachers will walk away with numerous strategies and templates to use immediately in their classrooms.

This workshop is focused on providing strategies for teachers in grades 4-12; however, teachers in grades K-3 may attend with the understanding that individual teacher problem-solving will be required to make the strategies effective in the younger grades. For specific reading strategies for younger grades including how to teach students to read, teachers in grades K-3 are encouraged to attend LETRS trainings, which teachers may register for in the spring by contacting their administrator and ESU 10 LETRS facilitators.
