RDG-5003 - Vocabulary Instruction and Development for PK12

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 8

Students will explore the research and theories that describe the process of vocabulary acquisition, vocabulary development through the use of strategies and skills in K-12 classroom, and the assessment of vocabulary. After understanding, analyzing, and synthesizing information about vocabulary acquisition and development, students will select a topic to research and produce a research proposal. Concurrently, students will increase their skills in using the Internet to locate relevant resources, explore technology tools that can enrich vocabulary instruction and conduct research using the online library. Critical thinking will be required throughout the course as students will be encouraged to think beyond what is presented and available each week as they consider how knowledge is communicated through vocabulary and how that knowledge can be taught and measured.
