Time: 10:00 – 12:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 29, 2020
Join Randi Littman for the webinar entitled Strategies for Learning and Retention of New Vocabulary to explore approaches that university and high school students can acquire essential vocabulary for their academic success.
In this webinar, we will explore strategies and tips for learning and remembering new words in a meaningful, interactive, and memorable way that is guaranteed to hold students’ interest. The workshop demonstrates vocabulary learning, repeated usage, and contextualization.
The participants will also learn how to set students up for autonomous learning. By reviewing some of the exercises and activities together during the webinar, teachers will have first-hand knowledge and practice with these methodologies.
