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
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)
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
Activity: Classify the following words on the previous chart • Vocabulary • Pantomiming • Pre-teach • Cognate • Scaffold
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
Frayer´s Model Definition in own words Use it in a sentence Word Picture What it is NOT (opposite)
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
