When all teachers in a school focus on the same academic vocabulary and teach in the same way, the school has a powerful comprehensive approach that will affect student learning. During this workshop, teachers will examine the research behind direct vocabulary, learn strategies for instruction and understand how to evaluate students’ vocabulary learning.

Workshop objectives

Participants will:

  • Understand characteristics of effective vocabulary instruction.
  • Apply a six-step process for direct instruction in vocabulary.

Who should attend?

Middle and high school teachers, literacy coaches, instructional leaders and principals.


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
