NCCAT will hold a six-session series focused on a research-to-practice exploration of the foundational skills in early literacy. Effective instruction in these fundamental components holds the key to life-long learning for every child in your classroom.
Attend all six and earn an NCCAT literacy badge or attend individual sessions to deepen your own understanding of the building blocks of beginning reading.
This session will focus on vocabulary. Research is very clear on the importance of vocabulary to reading comprehension. In fact, “Vocabulary is the largest determinant of comprehension of language” (Biemiller 2015).
