Display Universal Vocabulary
Exposing students to universal vocabulary is essential for literacy development in the information age. Students must learn words and their meanings to bring context to what is being read or taught. Displaying universal vocabulary exposes students to new terms and develops their knowledge base. Increase vocabulary acquisition for student learning using these three tips:
- Students should read 30 minutes per day.
- Expose students to vocabulary that includes transferability to all subjects.
- Read out loud to students to build their vocabulary base.
