Making Content Sticky: What To Do When Students Don\u27t Get It or Can\u27t Remember It

Abstract

Do your students struggle with the mountain of new vocabulary they need to master each year? Do you have difficulty getting students to speak, read, and write using academic language? Years of research confirms a direct link between word knowledge and academic success. However, stark gaps in vocabulary knowledge across ethnic groups and income levels still persist. This session will focus on neuroscience based strategies that are proven to accelerate the acquisition of core academic vocabulary and dramatically increasing student opportunities for listening, speaking and writing using academic language. Participants will leave with skills to transform vocabulary lessons into a multi-sensory interactive experience. Discover new, proven, practical strategies to build vocabulary, deepen content understanding, and engage students with academic text. Gain the skills you need to teach all students the words they need to succeed! Tap into the power of music, communication, and imagery to enhance literacy skills
