Building Academic Vocabulary with Foldables® and VKV®s

  • Vocabulary is a critical factor central to reading, writing, communicating, and thinking. It is so important that it influences success in and out of school. Graphic organizers have been shown to help at least 80 percent of students master key vocabulary skills (Brookbank et al., 1999). In this hands-on workshop participants experience how words are able to come alive, morph, and become more controllable when put into students’ hands via 3-D interactive graphic organizers (Foldables) and Visual Kinesthetic Vocabulary (VKV) manipulatives. Get immersed in words in a new way and leave with immediately usable ideas for teaching academic vocabulary.

    Workshop is available in half-day (2.5-3.0 hours) or full-day (5.5-6.0 hours) format. Participant materials provided.
