Vocabulary is the knowledge of words and word meanings. 

As Steven Stahl (2005) puts it, "Vocabulary knowledge is knowledge; the knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world." Vocabulary knowledge is not something that can ever be fully mastered; it is something that expands and deepens over the course of a lifetime. Instruction in vocabulary involves far more than looking up words in a dictionary and using the words in a sentence. Vocabulary is acquired incidentally through indirect exposure to words and intentionally through explicit instruction in specific words and word-learning strategies. 

For this workshop, students will engage in four components of an effective vocabulary development:

  1. wide or extensive independent reading to expand word knowledge

  2. instruction in specific words to enhance comprehension of texts containing those words

  3. instruction in independent word-learning strategies, and

  4. word consciousness and word-play activities to motivate and enhance learning
