Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
In this session, participants will be able to (1) articulate the research behind word-consciousness and varied vocabulary instruction and their roles in building students’ interests in words; (2) explain the role of students in growing and shaping their own vocabulary through metacognitive practices; (3) describe the purpose and function of using vocabulary games, activities and digital tools to challenge students to reflect, think critically and communicate their ideas through participation in collaborative activities. (4) intentionally select vocabulary and create three activities for content area instruction. 

Vocabulary acquisition and application are paramount to the building of student literacy skills, and often, even with our good intentions, we fall short in providing ample time for students to routinely interact and connect with new words.  In this session, participants will learn ways to cultivate word-consciousness in their students by integrating vocabulary investigation in daily classroom routines. Participants will leave with tools to enhance vocabulary instruction while empowering students to embrace the love of language.
