Elementary and Special Education Teacher (K-8)

Research tells us that we must be more intense and comprehensive in our approach to teaching vocabulary if our students are going to have the vocabulary that they need to succeed at the college level. In order for students' vocabularies to grow at an appropriate pace there must be a systematic, hierarchical approach that transcends all domains and includes rich vocabulary from all the content area subjects. Vocabulary is one of the key components of good reading comprehension and can be taught in many ways. [more]

Shawn, the Holy Grail for Students of History & Lit

Everyone can improve their vocabulary, to include mastering technical jargon. The key is to understand the structure of words and language. I teach through a variety of means, but the core of what I do is to look at how words are built within a language through the devices of a prefix, suffix, root word, or allusion.

I have never had a student who could not increase their vocabulary through understanding these connec [more]

Reading and writing growth for all types of students

My favorite part of teaching has always been watching a student suddenly take off with a skill, sometimes after hours or weeks of slow progress. The joy and pride a child feels when they ?get it,? when their hard work starts to pay off, is exciting and rewarding. The first part of my job as a tutor is to convince students that ?Smart is not something you are. Smart is something you get.? Also known as a ?growth mindset,? this belief can drive students to keep trying and keep working when face... [more]
