A deep and rich vocabulary is strongly correlated with proficiency in reading and success in school and life. Word Play Vocabulary/Morphology Workshop provides a clear and effective methodology for teaching vocabulary (including grammar, morphology, etymology and more) in the classroom. Participants will learn about the importance of morphology in vocabulary instruction and will discover ways to incorporate vocabulary activities across the curriculum.
