Freddy was the keynote speaker at the OCRA Fall conference. Freddy presented Strategic Vocabulary Selection: Choosing Words from Narrative & Informational Texts.
What’s the same? What’s different? English has approximately 600,000 different words. Which of these words should be taught in schools and how should they be taught? This keynote presentation addresses the content and strategies of vocabulary instruction that supports high levels of comprehension. In particular, differences in the words that are taught—and the way in which they are taught—in stories and in content-area texts will be emphasized.
