Word Power delivered by Kelly Ashley
This programme explores key vocabulary development research by Beck et al. Bringing Words to Life and the recent Improving Literacy at KS1 and KS2 and Preparing for Literacy guidance from the EEF, sharing practical advice on how to translate research into everyday classroom practice. How can we develop pupils’ #WordPower to improve reading, writing and communication? Strategies for increasing pupils’ EXPOSURE to words in a language-rich environment, alongside approaches for DIRECT TEACHING of vocabulary through the integration of ‘Word Attack’ skills will be explored.
