Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction Book Study

Exploring Proven Strategies and Peer Learning Opportunities

This summer, we invite you to join our book studies focusing on student success. These books emphasize meeting students where they are and supporting them in achieving their goals in school and in life. We anticipate engaging in relevant discussions on proven strategies and connecting with a network of peers from across central Minnesota who are eager to learn from one another.

Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction

Location: Zoom (online)

Students in 3rd grade and higher need to be learning 2,000 - 3,000 new words a year. Vocabulary is a key component to reading comprehension and important to student success across all content areas. Join us in June as we read Bringing Words to Life by Isabel L. Beck, Margaret G. McKeown and Linda Kucan. This book is grounded in research, the book explains how to select words for instruction, introduce their meanings, and create engaging learning activities that promote both word knowledge and reading comprehension. All meetings will occur via Zoom. Participants are responsible for purchasing their own book.
