Today we will focus on a number of strategies for teaching vocabulary. We will begin by trying out a strategy using color and word sets, and then we will meet in groups to brainstorm ideas for teaching vocabulary in the content areas. We will also watch a few videos that depict different approaches to vocabulary instruction, and we will discuss how these approaches might be used in your own classrooms.
We will also review the syllabus today to make sure that everyone understands what they need to do for the online sessions of this course.
