Vocabulary Building - Mrs. Potts Class

Chapter 7 Vocabulary Building Reflections on Vocabulary Building How do you feel when youre at a meeting or in class where everyone is using jargon with which you are not familiar? Do you ask someone to explain what theyre talking about, or do you try to determine meaning from the context?

Do you ever find yourself using jargon with friends or colleagues? Do you define your words when a new person joins the group? When Teaching Vocabulary Teachers Need to Know How proficient readers naturally enrich their vocabulary How to teach vocabulary explicitly How to meet the vocabulary needs of English

learners How to assess struggling readers vocabulary Word Tiers Tier one words: Common words used in everyday conversation (house, car, sleep) Tier two words: Less frequent, but interesting words (persuade, exhausted)

Tier three words: Rare words that are used in a particular context (psycholinguistic, paradigm) Aspects of Knowing a Word How to pronounce it correctly How it relates to other words How it is used in various contexts How to use it in multiple settings How to use it when writing

How it may have multiple meanings How to know its morphology (derivation) Ways to Increase Vocabulary Life experiences Vicarious experiences: Educational videos, TV, Internet, variety of books and texts, etc. Direct, or explicit, instruction How do you increase your own vocabulary?

Books? Television/movies? Word-of-the-day emails? Guidelines for Explicit Vocabulary Instruction (Flynt and Brozo, 2008) Choose words students need to know Expose students to selected words several times, and use the words in discussion Teach students to infer word meaning by looking for context clues and word parts Use vocabulary maps and word association to

demonstrate relationships among words Teach students how to analyze words and derivations Teach students multiple meanings of words More Guidelines for Explicit Instruction Teach new words Teach word-learning strategies Context clues Word hierarchies Language concepts
