- Effective vocabulary instruction strategies actively engage the student and require higher-level cognitive processing. These strategies include: using new words in novel sentences based on connections to prior knowledge, identifying synonyms and antonyms, analyzing word features, and using visual aides (Kester-Phillips, Foote, & Harper, 2008).
- Students need to understand semantic connections among words. It may be necessary to target understanding of basic concepts that underpin the vocabulary required to access the curriculum (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
- In-depth knowledge of word meaning helps students comprehend what they read and helps them use words accurately in speaking and reading (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
- Vocabulary intervention should provide opportunities for students to use target words in multiple contexts (Boone et al., 2007).
100% Concepts Primary incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
