Vocabulary Scenario

Use the following scenario from The IRIS Center to complete the tasks below:

Jacob is an active boy in the 4th grade who enjoys coming to school and participates in sports after school. Jacob does well in most classes but has difficulty with new vocabulary words. This difficulty with new vocabulary is not only seen during reading class but also during content area classes such as science and social studies. Jacob’s mother indicated that he has always had difficulty understanding new vocabulary but that it has not affected his comprehension until this year. Jacob is willing to adopt new strategies that will assist him in learning and remembering new vocabulary words and to help him better understand the story as a whole. Jacob and his teacher developed the following goal for him:

Given vocabulary words, Jacob will define and use each in a sentence.

Paulsen, K., & the IRIS Center.(2004).Comprehension & vocabulary: Grades 3–5.


Research three strategies regarding vocabulary instruction that will assist Jacob in reaching his goal.

In 500-750-words, identify and explain how each strategy could assist Jacob in reaching his goal.  In addition, discuss how you would involve Jacob’s parents, and develop an activity from one of these three strategies that Jacob’s parents can use at home.

Include at least three sources from your research in your essay to support your position.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines. An abstract is not required.
