This is a fast-paced, fun and interactive workshop style training run across two half days which will leave participants well equipped to start Word Aware in their schools or with individual students. You will leave the training sessions with lots of practical ideas on how to develop vocabulary in your school or caseload.

‘Spoken vocabulary at 5 years impacts on reading comprehension at 15 years of age’ (Cunningham and Stanovich, 1997). Vocabulary relates to reading comprehension, but impacts equally on curriculum areas that require specific word knowledge such as mathematics and science.
