Vocabulary - More than a Word List
by Lynne Price
Vocabulary knowledge is the conceptualization of word meaning based on semantics, context, visualization, and an individual’s prior experience. This session will present ways to develop a deep understanding of word meaning in oral and written language by providing ways to assess competency and teach to mastery. It will discuss word memory and word consciousness as well as three levels of mastery (labeling, sentence, and passage comprehension). RID CEUs.
