    Use context info and the definition to understand the word’s meaning.

    Students learn words by noticing words,
    being motivated to know words,
    and using context to
    decode words.

  • 5. Notice the word and recognize it as an unknown word.
    How Students
    Learn Words
    Use context info and the definition to understand the word’s meaning.
    Be motivated to know the word; engage in the learning process.
    Starting in Grades 4–6 and continuing all the way through high school and college, students must be able to draw upon context.
    Doing so helps them make sense of challenging new terms and concepts.
    How Students Learn Words
    Reading Strategy Series: Vocabulary
  • 6. To learn how to draw upon context and build deep vocabulary knowledge, your students need:
    Exposure to key vocabulary
    Explicitinstruction
    Extensive background knowledge

    Reading Strategy Series: Vocabulary
  • 7. Exposure to Key Vocabulary
    Research shows that it can take as many as 12 encounters with a new word before we add it to our vocabularies.
    Students need rich and varied
    exposures to language, both
    orally in and in print.
    For challenging terms, repeated exposure is not enough to prepare students to use the word.

  • 8. Explicit Instruction
    Research shows that explicit instruction helps
    students. Your support gives students the tools
    They need to become independent
    vocabulary learners.
    Students may think they know
    words that have very different
    subject area meanings. This is
    especially true for science and math terms. It’s
    important to teach students these words directly.

    Reading Strategy Series: Vocabulary
  • 9. Extensive Background Knowledge
    You can help students create a context for understanding new
    words in two ways:
    You can tap students’ prior knowledge. This
    Means drawing on students’ experiences, current
    interests, and cultures in ways that are relevant
    to the new words they are learning.
    In some situations, you can build background knowledge about concepts, content, or ideas. To do so, you can use a variety of activities, media, and extended learning activities to prepare students to learn new words.

    Reading Strategy Series: Vocabulary
  • 10. Strategies to Support All Students
  • 11. Dedicate part of your regular classroom lessons to explicit vocabulary instruction.
    Weave it in before reading to prepare students and
    after reading to make sure that students comprehend
    word meaning.
    After you teach students new words,
    give them chances to apply and practice
    using the words. This will help them
    absorb the meanings.
    Strategies to Support All Students
    Reading Strategy Series: Vocabulary
  • 12. Share research-based practices for learning new words with students.
    Tailor the practices to meet students’ needs.

  • 13. Enhance your content-area vocabulary instruction with technology tools.
    Using just a few technology tools in
    your lessons can benefit your
    students.
    Tools offer many ways for students to
    engage in, access, and express learning.
    They also give you options in how you represent information.

  • 14. Engaging Students
  • 15. Technology tools can motivate
    your students and encourage
    them to read more text, more
    often. Tools can put your
    students in the driver’s seat and
    help them become more active learners.
    Example: They can use tools to track their progress,
    see how many words they’ve learned, and find out
    how many words they still need to work on.

  • 16. Accessing and Expressing Learning
  • 17. Technology tools give your students many ways to access and express word knowledge.
    With tools, you can weave UDL  into your vocabulary
    instruction and give all students an equal chance to learn.
    Example: Digital tools can read words aloud. Hearing words
    in context can help your students recognize or recall
    meanings.
    Tools also help your students become strategic learners.
    Example: They can help your students break apart words in
    roots, affixes, prefixes, etc.

  • 18. Representing Information
  • 19. Representing Information
    Technology tools allow you to represent
    information in flexible formats to meet each of
    your student’s needs.
    Example: The use of online text can provide your students with ready access to glossary definitions and a wealth of supports. These include text-to-speech capabilities, multilingual supports, text highlighting tools, and the ability to change font.
    Example: Handheld technologies can provide students with access to study supports and tools in multiple locations beyond the classroom.

  • 21. LastWord
    The
    Four strategies are key to helping your students build deep word knowledge:
    Expose them to a rich array of words;
    Provide explicit vocabulary instruction;
    Share research-based practices; and
    Use technology tools.
    Using UDL and technology, you can tailor your instruction and support to meet each student’s needs. That’s what PowerUp is all about.
