What’s Happening in Vocabulary Research?

Elfrieda H. Hiebert, TextProject, University of California, Santa Cruz

Webinar presented on January 27, 2007.  Hosted by SchoolsMovingUp.

Presentation summary:

In this interactive presentation, Elfrieda (Freddy) H. Hiebert, Adjunct Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, will review recent research on vocabulary instruction. Central to this discussion of current research is the article "Vocabulary: Questions From the Classroom," written by Camille Blachowicz and colleagues and published in the December 2006 issue of Reading Research Quarterly. Videoclips of Professor Blachowicz's responses to a series of questions in an interview with Professor Hiebert will be part of the presentation. Participants will have the opportunity to download the Blachowicz et al. article prior to the event and also read a summary of a weblog that is designed to encourage thinking and interacting around current issues in vocabulary research.
