Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Reading (Elementary); Vocabulary--Study and teaching (Elementary);
From all of my reading and research, I learned that vocabulary is an essential part of teaching. In all of the curriculum areas, knowledge of vocabulary is important. With word understanding, comprehension grows and so does the student's knowledge.
Vocabulary development activities not only include many opportunities for students to be actively involved with reading a variety of books, but, through vocabulary instruction, the teacher directly teaches important words and strategies to help students understand what they are reading. Through the use of a variety of strategies I observed how different strategies can help students learn and grow in their knowledge. I now know a variety of strategies that work effectively with students that I might not have tried without doing my research for this project.
