Explicit vocabulary instruction – twilight session

16:00–17:30 on 18 October 2018

Twilight overview

Research evidence shows a clear link between students’ outcomes and their vocabulary knowledge. Furthermore, the research evidence also shows that there are profound differences in vocabulary knowledge among students from socioeconomic groups, with those from disadvantaged backgrounds having a considerable paucity of vocabulary compared to their peers. Once established, the differences in vocabulary knowledge remain. Consequently, the explicit teaching of vocabulary is an essential part of any classroom practice aimed at reducing the gaps in outcomes for these students.
