“Focusing vocabulary instruction on both word definitions and learning words in context is superior to instruction that emphasizes only one of these components.”
Caldwell & Leslie, 2009
What do you know about physics?
Have you ever heard of string theory?
Let’s learn more…..
1. bosons - particles that transmit forces
2. fermions – particles that make up matter
3. supersymmetry – an equal match of bosons and fermions
4. tachyon – a particle with imaginary mass
5. compactification – the act of reducing spacetime dimensions
6. chiral – spinning in only one direction
1. Teacher dictates the words; students write the words.
2. Students check their spellings against a model, and make any necessary corrections.
3. Teacher and students review the words, discussing meanings and looking at spelling patterns.
4. Students write dictated sentences that focus on the main idea of the text to be read.
Students read the text, stopping at predetermined points to discuss vocabulary, main idea, supporting details.
Following the reading, teacher and students revisit the vocabulary and main idea statements from the pre-reading portion of the lesson.
Review previously-taught phonics skills (i.e. vowel pairs, blends, digraphs, word endings)
Enhance learning through reciprocity – use encoding to support decoding.
Set a purpose for reading with comprehension questions.
