Little Tools of Power! Strengthening Academic Vocabulary Instruction

Academic language is a key part of the CCRS English Language Arts shift of complexity. During this presentation, the presenter will guide participants in exploring different levels of vocabulary, where to find tools to identify words and how to decide which words to teach and how to teach them whether through conversation--at lower levels--or more explicitly at Higher-Intermediate and Advanced English levels and ABE levels.
