Authentic Vocabulary Instruction in Social Studies

Vocabulary knowledge is essential for success in reading and writing in the Social Studies classroom. Research shows that direct, systematic, and explicit instruction is an effective way to teach vocabulary. Learn how to scaffold vocabulary instruction to provide students with rich and varied language experiences by immersing students in both content and academic vocabulary. In this session, teachers will experience a variety of research-based and authentic vocabulary strategies that will empower them to create a language-rich environment, provide explicit instruction of specific terms, expose students to high quality oral language through discussions, and utilize digital tools that support vocabulary instruction.
