SIM Learning Strategies Word Mapping


Target Audience:  Teachers grades 3 and above that teach vocabulary/reading


Course Objective: Participants will understand and apply the instructional sequence of the SIM Word Mapping Strategy and learn the importance of high frequency fidelity and its impact on student learning.


Course Description:  The content and instructional strategies presented in this professional learning event are aligned with Florida Standards and the Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction.  This instructional program has been designed to help older students quickly learn how to predict the meaning of unknown words.  

Low achievers often need such instruction because:

  • ·         they have not learned the meaning of a large number of words,

  • ·         they do not know how to identify parts of words that have meaning,

  • ·         they do not know the meaning of word parts, and

  • ·         they do not know how to use the meaning of word parts to predict the meaning of whole words.

These skills are critical when students are reading a text in school because they cannot take the time to look up the meaning of every word in a dictionary.  These skills are also critical when students take standardized reading comprehension tests where they are required to identify the meaning of words among several choices and where they are required to read passages and answer questions about them.  This program provides teachers with a functional and efficient way to teach these required skills and prepare students for the reading tasks they encounter in school and on tests.


Participants receive The Word Mapping Strategy manual.  After professional learning by a certified SIM Professional Developer participants have permission to copy all the instructional and student materials needed to teach this strategy for their students only.


Implementation Activity: A follow up satisfaction survey & progress monitoring student pre- and post- data are required prior to receiving 12 inservice credits.  


Follow Up Method: Email communication and coaching throughout the implementation period, as well as on-site coaching (per participant request) will be available.
