If vocabulary is truly the key to understanding a discipline, how can lessons be designed to create a more intentional focus on vocabulary? Vocabulary is best learned as students become aware of how words are used in context and then engage in activities that allow them to use those words as they process that content. Techniques for presenting and organizing new words will be highlighted and participants will experience strategies and games that allow for contextualized practice of new words. Finally, active and passive strategies for assessment of vocabulary will be discussed.
