Academic Vocabulary

Vocab LimitsWhat resources, tips and tricks do you use to teach vocabulary to students? Did you know that in order to learn a new word, we need 15-20 authentic encounters with that word to internalize it?

Here are some tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way…

  • Use a multi-sensory approach to teaching vocabulary (nonlinguistic, too!)
  • Use visual cues when presenting new words (colors, images, connections)
  • Arrange your word wall by concept instead of alphabetically
