Professional development with proven positive effects on vocabulary instruction and student achievement: that's what reading teachers are looking for, and that's what the Teacher Study Group (TSG) model delivers. With the nine complete TSG sessions in this book, K-8 teachers will form dynamic in-school learning groups with their fellow educators and discover the best ways to apply scientifically based vocabulary research to classroom practice. This comprehensive workbook gives TSG participants all the materials they need for the nine sessions. Participants will get dozens of worksheets, group activities that give them hands-on practice with the concepts, and thought-provoking discussion questions. With this collaborative professional development model, reading teachers will learn proven, research-based ways to deliver high-quality vocabulary instruction--and improve literacy outcomes for all of their students.
