Literacy Success Portable Event Package

The Critical Role of Basic Vocabulary Instruction

In a world of interrupted learning and uncertainty about the future, educators are looking to maximize their efforts to ensure that students don’t fall behind. Research has shown that direct vocabulary instruction is one of the most effective strategies for increasing student literacy achievement.

Marzano, our self-paced virtual event offers targeted sessions that detail how to create and implement classroom, school, and districtwide programs of intentional, systematic vocabulary instruction. You will gain the critical knowledge and skills needed to assess vocabulary knowledge, place students on a continuum of learning, and implement a cluster approach to vocabulary instruction.
