Project Description

The explicit teaching of vocabulary

This webinar is given in two sessions:

  1. a comprehensive session covering the reasoning for explicit teaching of vocabulary and the Lexonik method
  2. an optional follow-up session where we will put to practice everything we’ve learned in the first session

You can register for both sessions, or just the first one. Your choice!

Session 1: The explicit teaching of vocabulary

The explicit teaching of vocabulary is integral to any classroom and progressive curriculum but is an area that can be lacking in our teacher training.  To lessen teacher variability and ensure students can access the academic vocabulary of the curriculum, a systematic whole school approach to the teaching of vocabulary is essential, and this webinar will explore this vital area.

This free webinar will focus on the following areas:

  • Introduction to why the explicit teaching of vocabulary is so important
  • Vocabulary morphology and how it supports learner automaticity
  • Practical activities to develop in any classroom

With over 20 years experience of developing teachers, schools and curriculum the team at Lexonik are best placed to support you in thdevelopment of a systematic approach to the teaching of vocabulary regardless of your subject area or grade level.

Session 2 [optional]: Embedding vocabulary

Acting as a follow up webinar to The Explicit Teaching of Vocabulary this session is a practical, small group learning experience helping you to embed vocabulary teaching in your classroom, tailored to the content of your subject specialism.  The small group nature of this webinar will allow you to ask questions of colleagues and develop techniques you can immediately use within your classroom. Ahead of the webinar participants will be asked to complete a pre-learning task, which helps to personalize the session.
