Vocabulary refers to the words we need to know to understand what we hear and read and those we use to speak and write. Reading and listening comprehension requires knowledge of a wide range of vocabulary (BLD, 2016). To support literacy development, teachers must provide both indirect and direct vocabulary instruction and provide students with many opportunities to meaningfully engage with new words.

Understanding

Chapter four in PRF summarizes what researchers know about vocabulary instruction. This chapter provides a foundation for instructional practices focused on developing vocabulary knowledge. I learned about indirect and direct vocabulary learning, types of word learning, and proven strategies for classroom teaching. The research-based information is clearly presented in an efficient, easy-to-read manner and I will continue to refer to this in future.

This article supported my knowledge of how teachers can promote word consciousness and vocabulary growth. It provided me with insight regarding the diversity of vocabulary knowledge among students and the role of vocabulary learning in closing the knowledge gap. The article gave me a good understanding of how to promote word consciousness and model sophisticated vocabulary use to create a vocabulary-enriched classroom and a love of words.

This monograph provides information on how to enhance vocabulary development and knowledge for both English-speaking students and ELLs. It expanded my understanding of what it means to “know” a word and the importance of both high-frequency and content vocabulary, and provided information regarding approaches to direct vocabulary instruction, word-learning strategies, and assessment practices.

Assessment

This article discusses the intricacies of assessing vocabulary development and growth in content areas. It also discusses considerations for improving teacher-made assessments, the importance of measuring both vocabulary breadth and depth and how three classroom assessment techniques can be modified to evaluate student vocabulary knowledge and growth and guide future instruction.

Classroom Vocabulary Assessment for Content Areas

This article discusses the intricacies of assessing vocabulary development and growth in content areas. It also discusses considerations for improving teacher-made assessments, the importance of measuring both vocabulary breadth and depth and how three classroom assessment techniques can be modified to evaluate student vocabulary knowledge and growth and guide future instruction.

This reading presents research findings regarding how vocabulary should be taught and related to the comprehension process, as well as helpful diagnostic tools to assess a child’s vocabulary. Options for assessing vocabulary knowledge are explained, including oral reading assessments, cloze tests, maze tests, and vocabulary flash cards. It was particularly useful to read about recommended instructional methods and strategies based on the assessment findings using an If-Then strategy guide.

This reading was helpful because it provided a brief synopsis of four informal assessments that examine students’ vocabulary and growth. These classroom assessments measure students’ understanding and growth through writing and speaking, as well as their knowledge of specific words and word parts. These assessments can be modified for different grades, monitor progress, show gaps in understanding and can be used to inform instruction.

Word Wall in the Upper Grades-Expanding Vocabulary & Spelling: In this activity, the teacher uses a word wall as a resource for junior students. A co-constructed word wall such as this can include high-frequency irregularly spelled words and homophones.  Since children must learn to recognize and spell these words in order to be fluent, proficient readers and writers, teachers can use the word wall to support instruction in the recognition of vocabulary, common word parts and spelling…
