Structured Vocabulary Practices for Robust Word Learning
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level
One of the key contributors to language comprehension is the breadth and depth of vocabulary knowledge a student brings to a text or topic. In fact, it’s the bridge! In this vocabulary course, you’ll learn about the features of evidence-based vocabulary instruction, including routines for introducing new words, protocols for prioritizing words, and strategies for active processing of vocabulary knowledge. As part of a 4-part framework for word learning, you’ll also learn ways to engage students with independent word learning actions like using context clues and unpacking word parts with morphology. And to encourage word play that builds the mental lexicon, you’ll design a fun word challenge for students! Ideal for 3-12 general educators, support specialists, and content area teachers, this foundational vocabulary course will equip you with the knowledge you need to deliver structured and robust vocabulary instruction aligned to the science of reading. 

This course format builds from module to module in a way that allows you to work through each of the essential ideas in smaller, more focused segments. You’ll find the same great resources and applicable assignments, distributed over 10 modules.
