Why Teach Vocabulary?
Vocabulary development is crucial for reading comprehension. If a student does not know the meaning of a word, their comprehension of the text will be impaired.
When students are able to decode words and comprehend their meanings, they are able to read with greater understanding and fluency.
Research has shown that explicit vocabulary instruction is effective in improving students’ reading comprehension and overall language skills.
Vocabulary is one of the strands of Scarborough’s Reading Rope, which looks at the elements that make a skilled reader.
