Acclimating adolescents into effective vocabulary understanding and use is one challenge of the Common Core. Using Module samples, participants will analyze the vocabulary components of the modules. In order to review aligned instruc- tional and experiential practices, participants will discuss and practice with the vocabulary instructional components  housed within the modules. Sound, research-based vocabulary practices will serve as catalysts to effective implementation of  vocabulary  module  components  to  improve  teaching  and  learning.

Course Outcomes:

  • Develop understanding and working knowledge of the vocabulary instructional challenges within the Common Core.
  • Plan and implement with vocabulary instructional components applied to module instructional units.
  • Develop working knowledge of, and practice with, sound, research-based vocabulary practices to effectively implement modules while supporting relevant vocabulary components.
  • Analyze the assessment features of the curriculum modules that support vocabulary in order to effectively support expectations of the Common Core.
