William Van Cleave is a hands-on, interactive, engaging, and even very entertaining expert in the area of writing. He has presented several times for the Wausau School District and has received rave reviews! William Van Cleave will provide research-grounded strategies and techniques that can be immediately applied in your classroom the next day. The concepts presented are curriculum neutral and therefore easily added to your current lessons.

Word Smarts: Developing Vocabulary in Students of All Ages

In this session, Van Cleave uses current research to help participants understand the issues confronting students who struggle with vocabulary and reading comprehension. He emphasizes what the research tells us about vocabulary knowledge in students; how students best develop their vocabulary and how teachers can best instruct them. Participants will recognize the importance of morphology and its value in the development of vocabulary and word attack skills. Throughout the workshop, participants will practice each concept and learn tools useful for helping students understand and decode familiar words.
