Working with Multilingual Learners and Vocabulary Knowledge for Secondary Schools: Developing Word Consciousness
Cox, Robyn; O'Brien, Katherine; Walsh, Maureen; West, Helen
English in Australia, v50 n1 p77-84 2015
This paper reports on a 10 week vocabulary focused intervention based on the Word Generation program (Snow, 2002, 2010; SERP, 2011) in primary and secondary schools, which demonstrated clear improvements, particularly with students who are EAL/D learners. Teachers across English, Science, Maths and Social Sciences developed professional learning communities as they collaboratively planned the systematic introduction and elaboration of abstract academic vocabulary in each of their curriculum areas.
