Vocabulary as a Foundation for Learning

Course Description:

Words are a key building block of language, literacy, and learning. Build strong foundations for long-term academic success in early learners by embedding powerful vocabulary instruction into your K-3 teaching practice. Take this course to:

• Examine the relationship between vocabulary, literacy, and knowledge development

• Compare what you know about how children develop vocabulary to common teaching practices

• Receive tools to transform ineffective vocabulary instruction and foster word consciousness and word learning

• Explore techniques for assessing vocabulary growth and acting on those findings

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

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
