SIM Virtual Professional Learning: The Academic Vocabulary Series

Vocabulary LINCing Routine, August 9, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EST

Clarifying Routine August 10, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EST

Presenters: Rosanne Arvin & Marc Markell


These are stand alone sessions, but we encourage participation in both for optimum concept experience.

The Vocabulary LINCing Routine is designed to facilitate student use of two powerful tools, an auditory memory device and a visual memory device that will help them learn and remember the meaning of complex terms.

The Clarifying Routine is used to focus on a topic and then explore related details and their importance to the critical ideas and concepts. Using this routine, teachers can help students master the meaning of targeted words and phrases.

Participants will receive the following materials as part of their registration: SIM Virtual Professional Learning, applicable guidebook(s), access to digital teacher resources, and a one-hour small group coaching session.
