  1. Building Vocabulary:Strategies for Developing InternalizationWorkshop #2 of a 4 part series Elizabeth Smith English Language Fellow

  2. Norms and Expectations • Respect others (by listening, by supporting) • No cell phones, no side conversations please • Participate fully • Be vocal and involved! • Use Parking Lot • Learn, share and apply to our teaching!

  3. Agenda: • Do Now/Review • Classifying New Words • Theory: “Vocabulary Development with ELLs” • Frayer Model • Break • Teaching Word Parts • Cognates/False Cognates • Internalization Games • Exit Ticket

  4. Do Now: How Do We Currently Teach Vocabulary? • How do you introduce and practice vocabulary with your class? • How do you assess vocabulary? • What vocabulary practices seem to work well with your students? • What are ways we’ve found don’t work too well? • Ex: Dictionary drills haven’t worked well for my students

  5. Review: Choosing Conceptual Vocabulary • Choose words that are thematically related to your unit • Words that allow students to talk ABOUT topics (not just words that are found in textbooks)

  6. Vocabulary Development Strategies • Routines and Schedules • Ex: Class 1: Introduce and play with vocabulary • Homework: Students use vocabulary, create frayer models • Assessment is regular routine • Keep assessment regular and consistent (form of accountability) • Multiple exposures = greater internalization

  7. Classifying New WordsCreating Personalized Vocabulary Lists

  8. Activity: Classify the following words on the previous chart • Vocabulary • Pantomiming • Pre-teach • Cognate • Scaffold

  9. Quick Look at Vocabulary Theory… • Read the article “Vocabulary Development with ELLs” • Find the vocabulary words from the Classifying Words activity • Underline any other important vocabulary you find from the article

  10. Frayer´s Model Definition in own words Use it in a sentence Word Picture What it is NOT (opposite)

  11. Activity: Practice Frayer Models • Let´s practice the Frayer Model vocabulary activity as students! • Using chart paper in groups of 5, select ONE word from your individualized vocabulary list to create your model

  12. Reflection • Did you find this activity effective? • In what point in your vocabulary instruction could you use Frayer models?

  14. Activity: Word Breakdown Use your Prefix, Root and Suffix Chart to figure out the meaning of the following words: 1) IN VIS IBLE 2) DE CIS SION 3) TELE VIS ION 4) SCISSORS 5) RE JECT

  15. Cognates • Cognates words that have the same root in English and Spanish • About 90% of Spanish cognates have the same meaning in English

  16. False Cognates: Beware! • ¡Ojo! Some cognates are misleading! • Ex: embarrassed, embarazado • To assist, asistir • Teach students how to use cognates and explicitly state the false cognates

  17. Vocabulary Games and Activities Best way to internalize new vocabulary? PLAY WITH LANGUAGE! • “I Have, Who Has?” • Memory

  18. Parking Lot • Questions/Comments/Concerns? • Feedback
