Vocabulary Is the Key to Learning

Why attend the Effective Vocabulary Instruction Training of Trainers Institute?

What percentage of words in a text or speech do students need to know to be able to understand what they are reading or hearing? Shockingly… 95%! This percentage is even more shocking when you consider that students encounter about 180,000 new words each school year.

Teaching vocabulary systematically must be a critical aspect of instruction at every grade level, in every subject, in every school, because it is one of the most important instructional intervention practices schools can employ to close the achievement gap and raise student achievement for all students.

When schools make a commitment to teaching vocabulary strategies, student achievement increases. This requires a proactive approach to planning and teaching vocabulary that focuses on both high yield vocabulary strategies and fun and engaging vocabulary activities.

"I enjoyed the meetings especially getting to work with others in breakout rooms. Online coursework was very organized and manageable within the time constraints. Overall, I enjoyed the vocabulary training very much and am looking forward to sharing it with my teachers."

- Assistant Principal, Elementary School

"The trainer did a great job of teaching using the strategies. The PD was not like most because it walks the walk. I can support my colleagues with the implementation of effective vocabulary strategies."
