Overview

Would you like to increase vocabulary comprehension for your K-12 students whether they are students who are struggling or those who are already exceling? Join Beth Lawrence as she discusses the key roles vocabulary, background knowledge, and visuals play in student comprehension. You will learn about a new cognitive-educational construct, Semantic Reasoning (developed by co-founders Deena Seifert and Beth Lawrence) and why it's so important. Beth will also share research, a demo, and testimonials on InferCabulary, a web-based tool that uses Semantic Reasoning, and explain the powerful impact it has on getting students to immediately apply new knowledge to new concepts. In addition, she will show how you can easily create your own Semantic Reasoning vocabulary lessons using Google's free Workbench tool. Come discover how to improve comprehension for all of your students!
