WORD AWARE - Teaching Vocabulary across the Curriculum

23rd June 2017: 9.15am - 3.30pm

Worcestershire Young Farmers Club, Shires Farm, Hawford, Worcester

With Stephen Parsons and Anna Branagan

Vocabulary is important in its own right, but it is also a powerful predictor of reading and academic success. Word Aware is a structured process that accelerates the acquisition of both spoken and written vocabulary. It uses the STAR approach to successfully teach vocabulary in the classroom. This course is full of practical ideas that are easy to apply. The trainers advocate a whole school approach but it can be used with classes, small groups or individual word learners. Useful at every level, the course is of particular value for those who start at a disadvantage – including children with special educational needs and English as an additional language.

This is a fast paced, fun and interactive workshop style day, which will leave participants well equipped to start Word Aware in their school or with individuals.

This course is suitable for class teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, specialist teachers, SENCOs, Head teachers, speech and language therapists and educational psychologists.

All participants will receive a copy of the new book Word Aware.
