Building the 'Word-Rich' classroom
Within this programme, teachers will explore educational theory and evidence-based practice in order to develop an understanding of the importance of explicit vocabulary instruction. Considering the goal of a ‘word rich’ culture and developing word consciousness in our pupils, this programme will consider how this looks in classrooms, as well as at subject curriculum and whole-school level.
This programme supports practitioners to;
- Create a vision and model for a ‘word-rich’ culture in schools
- Develop a repertoire of strategies within classrooms to effectively teach vocabulary
- Reflect on and evaluate existing curriculum structures while considering the status of vocabulary
