Beyond the Spelling List: Authentic Vocabulary Instruction for Literacy Success

Professional Growth Opportunities

Tired of spelling lists? Join us for an interactive day to explore authentic vocabulary instruction in English language arts and across all subject areas. In this workshop, teachers will experience dynamic vocabulary instruction and assessment methods. We will examine the Saskatchewan curriculum and see how vocabulary fits into comprehension and writing. Teachers will leave this day with practical tips and tools to take back to the classroom to infuse vocabulary fluidly throughout their school day.

Participants will:

  • Explore research supporting differentiated interdisciplinary vocabulary instruction.
  • Appreciate the importance of assessment strategies in moving vocabulary understanding forward.
  • Increase understanding of practical strategies and tools that can be applied in various classrooms and multiple grade levels.
  • Design an instructional plan to incorporate vocabulary instruction during the day.
