meaning and words
WHENEVER you can embed meaning and/or emotion into input, chances of retention increase dramatically.
current research... 1.vocabulary impacts reading comprehension poorest readers have the weakest vocabulary improving listening comprehension improves reading comprehension exposure or oral language improves vocabulary growth poor readers are not exposed to challenging vocabulary repetition improves vocabulary acquisition
The single most important factor that determines a students future literacy achievement is their vocabulary.
Shades of meaning
shades of meaning... In front of you there are six pieces of paper with different words on each. In a trio, decide what order you would put the words, moving from weak (or neutral) to strong. place the done paper on your table when you are finished as a group.
Debrief Did your interaction include... explanation? questions? interpretation? negotiation? evaluation? meaning making? play? rigor? relevance? relationships?
I Heard That Get in trios - each person will have a specific job. speaker - will use as many target words in their speech listener - will listen for target words spoken in correct context recorder - will tally when they hear a target word
Here are your target words: rigorous relevant relationships common core Gaylord instruction connections
How did you do?
Where were we in terms of rigor? knowledge comprehension application analysis synthesis evaluation
How about relevance? acquiring applying interdisciplinary real-world predictable real-world unpredictable
Assignment: Look up the word demonstrative and write down the definition. demonstrative: Tending to show feelings, esp. of affection, openly. Now use it in a sentence. The word demonstrative is really cool. Has anyone ever received something like this from a student?
Context-dependent stems to the rescue... Im demonstrative when I.... I dont think its appropriate to be demonstrative in... Demonstrative!!?? How can you think _______ is demonstrative?!

debrief Did any of these strategies embed rigor, relevance and relationships? Did any of these strategies require repetition? Did any of these strategies embed exposure to oral language? Did any of these strategies require listening comprehension? Did any of these strategies provide a challenge for you?
next steps... Consider the three different strategies that were shared and practiced today. Which could you see yourself implementing in the future first? What is a next step you can take in order to do so?
