The Vocabulary Edge for English Learners | Webinar

How do we best support the vocabulary, comprehension, and knowledge-building of our English Learners (ELs)? By building on their strengths! Join Dr. Elfrieda Hiebert on December 11 for her webinar exploring opportunities to better support ELs.


Developing a solid foundation in core vocabulary, which represents the key ideas about the world which ELs already have, is fundamental to supporting ELs in accessing their existing knowledge. By following Dr. Hiebert’s research-based principles, ELs become equipped with both the context and fluency required to understand the majority of text that they read—allowing them to later learn more difficult and rarer words with greater ease.

This session will be of interest to pre-k through elementary teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. Time for questions will be provided.
