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!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and knowledge with us today! Here's a great book for each of our learners today. It is by Dr. Mortimer Adler and the title is 'How To Read A Book', it is a beautiful book to have.

Thank you for the demo!!!
Vocabulary starts at home. I like that they are only allowed research based strategies. The IC demo was interesting. ELL to SAT sounds good to me!
