LETRS Module 4: The Mighty Word: Building Vocabulary and Oral Language


  • Shanna Brooks


This module emphasizes the importance of word meanings for reading comprehension and reviews many research-based approaches to vocabulary instruction. Beginning with an overview of the vocabulary gap that characterizes many poor readers, the roles of home language, reading aloud, verbal modeling in the classroom, and independents reading in vocabulary development are explored. Many methods for teaching breadth and depth of word knowledge are introduced and practiced.
