L2 Vocabulary Teaching and Learning, Friday, June 23, 2017
In this workshop, we will explore essential aspects of the nature of vocabulary, get familiar with some important findings from vocabulary studies that help us understand how words are organized and learned, offer informed pedagogical suggestions for teaching vocabulary in a systematic way, and share usable activities and strategies to help students accelerate in learning words. Some of the questions we will address include: What does it mean to know a word? Which words should I teach my students? What are some of the best ways to teach words?  What strategies can students use to learn new words?
