Vocabulary Instruction and Word Learning for Secondary Content Areas
Course #
Graduate Credits
Grade Level

Vocabulary development is a critical skill for all academic achievement, yet it’s an often-overlooked part of instruction, especially in the content areas. This course offers a review of research to support vocabulary instruction using words carefully selected from existing curriculum and standards in any content area. Direct instruction leads students to vocabulary growth, improved comprehension of challenging texts, and word-learning skills that will extend beyond high school. Word mastery and confidence is built from daily routines that engage students with new words in a classroom environment that promotes and practices word-learning skills. 

This course is part of a Literacy Secondary Learning Pathway/Certificate bundle in partnership with American College of Education and Augustana University. Visit our Certificate page to learn more.
