Why teach vocabulary?

->The link between vocabulary knowledge and comprehension is undeniable. While reading increases a student's vocabulary significantly, direct and explicit instruction in this particular area has also proven to be an effective mean in learning new words. Vocabulary is essential to being knowledgeable and it is a staple in all of our classrooms.

->The activities in program help students learn vocabulary through repetition and discussion. During such activities, students are encouraged to check their spelling.
