Bernice Ege-Zavala presents "Helping Students Develop Vocabulary by Building Awareness of Vocabulary Patterns" at the OPSI January Conference.
Quick Summary: Successful readers and listeners use strong predicting skills to help them comprehend text. ELLs are often less able to predict accurately because they do not recognize patterns in vocabulary that are apparent to native speakers. Recent research in vocabulary patterns can help teachers assist students in developing skills to both notice and produce more natural chunks of language, thereby lowering the learning load and improving the learner's use of natural English.
