The Vocabulary Rich Classroom
Alex Wilhelm- Section B, 9-10-15
The four types of vocabulary are oral (words understood when said aloud), print (words understood when read or written), receptive (words understood when listening or reading, and productive (words understood when speaking or writing.)
There is a three tier model for how to select vocabulary words to teach.
- Tier 1- includes basic words most students know (ex. car, toy, etc.)
- Tier 2- includes words essential to comprehension and are used by "mature language users" (ex. mysterious, scrumptious, etc.)
- Tier 3- Includes low-frequency words associated with content areas (ex. peninsula, nucleus, etc.)
