Open Workshop on Effective Vocabulary Teaching and Learning Strategies for English Language Learners

Date: Saturday, February 13th, 2016 Time: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Speaker: Yilin Sun (South Seattle College)

This interactive session will share several vocabulary teaching/learning strategies based on the recent development in research and teaching practice. The purpose of vocabulary learning includes both learning the words and the ability to use them automatically in a wide range of language contexts when the need arises (Folse, 2005, 2011, Carter & McCarthy, 1988, Nation, 2001, 2011). Vocabulary learning strategies, therefore, should include strategies for using as well as knowing a word. The presenter will engage participants in activities that will facilitate metacognitive strategies as well as application strategies. Handouts provided.
