Why every school needs a vocabulary curriculum (and some tips about how to build one!)


In this session, we will explore the importance of teaching vocabulary and discuss the research that demonstrates why we can’t afford to leave this vital area of learning to chance. Looking at the practicalities of designing and implementing a broad and rich vocabulary curriculum, we’ll discuss helpful strategies to ensure all students benefit from language instruction.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
