Robust AND Efficient Vocabulary Instruction
Hello colleagues, We all know how important vocabulary instruction is. One of the "Four Practical Principles for Enhancing Vocabulary Instruction" from the Reading Rockets website is "Establish Efficient yet Rich Routines for Introducing Target Words." As noted in this blog, "intensive ...vocabulary instruction" takes a lot of time. And instructional time is a precious commodity.
This has certainly been the case in my own practice. I'm yearning to find ways to be more efficient without taking away the richness of the experience for learners..
How do you manage vocabulary instruction, so that it is deeply meaningful but ALSO efficient?
(Check out the blog to read more on this principle and to learn about the other three practical principles)
