Teaching vocabulary course, supporting the lowest 20% readers, reading Deep Dive training, tier 1 2 and 3 words

Teaching vocabulary is a focus for many schools and is increasingly considered a key area in raising standards in English, reading and across the wider curriculum.

Limited word knowledge is a key factor in under-achievement of both English speaking learners as well as SEND and EAL learners. Without excellent word knowledge, learners are poorly equipped to engage with the demands of the curriculum and the texts they need to read and write.

This course examines the research and approaches to developing vocabulary, offering practical approaches to the teaching of vocabulary.

  • Research
  • How words are learnt
  • Strategies to support teaching of vocabulary
  • The importance of understanding Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary to develop comprehension
  • Types of words
  • Multiple meanings
  • Figurative language
  • Links to spelling and meaning
  • Vocabulary and EYFS/EAL/SEND learners
  • The importance of a vocabulary progression framework

This course is aimed at:

  • Teachers
  • English/Reading leads
  • Senior leaders

Appropriate for:

  • Primary
  • Secondary
  • Specialist schools
  • Independent schools

9.30 am – 12.30 pm

The course was really useful. It was great to have some research I have done confirmed and lots of practical strategies that can easily be implemented. It was nice to hear the data and impact following the implementation on these strategies. I really enjoyed the cognition section linked to schemas and how the brain works.
