Literacy Strand

What is one of the most critical indicators of students’ success in school, in life and standardized tests? A student’s expansiveness of vocabulary, coupled with their ability to leverage it in enhancing their reading, speaking, listening, and writing abilities.

In order to be College and Career ready, students must have a rich and varied vocabulary that can help them understand what is being said to them and what they read on a daily basis. Appendix A of the Common Core Standards states, “Key to students’ vocabulary development is building rich and flexible word knowledge“. Participants will review the Common Core Vocabulary Guidelines and specifically look to address Shift 6.
