Teaching Vocabulary: Word Meanings and Word Knowledge

Course Section Description:

Design more effective lesson plans by learning to evaluate your students' word knowledge and to incorporate vocabulary instructional strategies. Explore the role of vocabulary knowledge in the relationship between the written vocabularies of reading and writing, and the oral vocabularies of listening and speaking. Evaluate how your instructional practices align with National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) standards and your state's standards.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
