  2. Where in the day could word learning occur?

  3. Receptive Vocabulary (in) & Expressive Vocabulary (out)

  4. “The difference in the number of words known by students with poor vocabularies versus students with rich vocabularies is extensive, grows over time, and becomes apparent early.” (Baker, Simmons & Kameemui, Big IDEAS, University of Oregon)

  5. “The extent of oral language is highly correlated with later reading proficiency.” (Bishop &Adams, 1990; Butler, Marsh, Sheppard & Sheppard, 1985; Pikulski & Tobin, 1989; Share, Jorm, MacLean & Matthews, 1984)

  6. “Some children decode words fluently and still have reading comprehension problems that seem to stem from language comprehension problems.” (Oakhill, Cain & Yuill, 1998; Yuill & Parkin, 1986)

  7. “We use words to think; the more words we know, the finer our understanding is about the world.” (Stahl, 1999)

  8. “Comprehension of a text depends crucially on knowledge of specific words that may not be familiar to some students.” (Nagy, 1998)

Directions: For each word, write a sentence and use the word correctly in the sentence. 1. 1. epiphenomenal epiphenomenal: having the character of or relating to an epiphenomenon ________________________________________________________ 2. kern kern: to form or set (as a crop of fruit) ________________________________________________________ 3: stative stative: expressing a bodily or mental state ________________________________________________________

  10. “Definitions, as an instructional device have substantial weaknesses and limitations. Definitions do not teach you how to use a new word and do not effectively convey concepts. Think of it this way: Why isn’t a glossary of biological terms an adequate substitute for a biology textbook?” (Nagy, 1989) “…thus knowing a word cannot be identified with knowing a definition.” (Nagy & Scott, 2000)
