The Training of Trainers: Effective Vocabulary Instruction Course focuses on systematically addressing a root cause of academic struggles – a lack of vocabulary and background knowledge. 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.
This course comes with, and requires, the Effective Vocabulary Instruction Learning-Focused Lessons book and trainer guide.
