The edLeader Panel recording can be accessed here.

In this edWeb podcast, ​​Dr. Freddy Hiebert shares her research-based strategies for educators to help students make connections that will allow them to not only understand the text at hand, but also to build the capacity to understand more texts at a deeper level. Educators especially appreciate Dr. Hiebert’s tactical and thoughtful approach as she shares small, actionable changes that make a big, long-term impact. 

Listeners leave with an understanding of the following: 

  • The science behind vocabulary and background knowledge and its impact on reading comprehension and content learning
  • At what point of a child’s reading development it is best to introduce vocabulary and background knowledge—and how this overlaps with developing other critical reading skills such as word recognition
  • How educators engage young children (Grades PreK-2) in the expansion of their vocabulary and knowledge base 

This edWeb podcast is of interest to K-5 teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
