Event Details

Developing a strong vocabulary is essential if children are to become successful literacy learners.  Word Aware is a whole school approach which promotes vocabulary development.  It is an evidence-based program which provides a structured process to help support vocabulary enrichment in all students and particularly for students with special educational needs and children with English as a second language.

In this workshop the presenters will take the participants through this fast-paced, fun and interactive workshop, and provide lots of practical ideas on how to develop vocabulary in the classroom. Attendees will leave well-equipped to start Word Aware with their students immediately.

All participants will receive a copy of Word Aware: Teaching vocabulary across the day, across the curriculum (valued at $86.00). It is essential to have the Word Aware book when attending the course.
