  • Katy McWean (Secondary Consultant)

• To explore the importance of students developing a rich and broad vocabulary
• To explore quick and easy practical teaching strategies for developing vocabulary.

Students who have a broad and rich vocabulary have an academic advantage and better academic outcomes in every subject discipline than those students who have a vocabulary deficit. Indeed, developing knowledge of a wealth of words is key to developing knowledge in every subject whilst also enabling students to fully express themselves with accuracy and authority.

This course is suitable for all ECTs across the curriculum who wish to explore practical strategies to develop student vocabulary in their own subject. The focus will be on low-teacher input but high impact strategies that will complement the subject being delivered.

This course is provided at no charge for all ECTs registered with Lancashire County Council as the Appropriate Body as part of our ECT Package, however the full course fee of £45 will be charged in the event of non-attendance or where the ECT is registered with a different Appropriate Body.
