Vocabulary: From Vague to Vivid

Researchers have discovered that word knowledge in the primary grades is a strong predictor of student growth and success in high school. Studies reveal that reading comprehension is closely connected to vocabulary instruction. In this workshop, we will focus on practical strategies and lessons proven to increase vocabulary skills while fostering student engagement through practical writing strategies.

Grammar through Writing

Explore the strategies for teaching grammar in the classroom while keeping high-stakes assessment as a focus for measurement. According to the MAAP guidelines, students’ knowledge of grammar will now be assessed through student writing—a practice that the National Writing Project has endorsed for years. In this workshop, we will examine best practices designed to enhance grammar instruction through writing while giving special focus to effective mini-lessons.
