I started my professional reading looking back at the reading book to understand what the key ideas behind vocabulary instruction are and what might fit with the needs of my learners.
"The more words students know, the easier it will be for the to comprehend what they read"
This book talking about a vocabulary program and suggests that these for elements are needed in order for students to have comprehensive vocabulary to support reading.
- Word consciousness
- Learning/teaching of individual words
- Learning/teaching of word-learning strategies
- Planning and encouragement that leads to independent reading
