To explore how a whole-school vocabulary strategy can be improved further
To explore how the explicit instruction of vocabulary can be developed further
To explore how subject disciplinary vocabulary can be best taught in each subject

Students who have a broad and rich vocabulary have an academic advantage over those students who have a vocabulary deficit. Indeed, developing a wealth of words is key to enabling students to fully understand the range of academic texts they will encounter across the curriculum, as well as express themselves with accuracy and authority.

Are you a school that has recently made headway in developing a deep and broad student vocabulary, but are not sure how to take this further or how to sustain developments that have been made? Are you looking for ideas about how to improve the explicit instruction of vocabulary in the classroom, or are you looking for ideas about how to teach the development of subject specific disciplinary vocabulary?

This course is suitable for all teachers across the curriculum who have responsibility for developing a whole school vocabulary strategy and wish to explore how to improve their long-term approach. Time will be allocated for delegates to reflect on their school's vocabulary strategy and to share good practice.
