What does the evidence say about vocabulary interventions?Evidence shows the importance of presenting new vocabulary words multiple times and in multiple formats. Students benefit from being presented new vocabulary words up to 36 times to learn them. (Storkel et al., 2016)

Evidence also shows that teaching children new vocabulary words using tasks like defining, using words in sentences, concept mapping, and challenges to use words in real life activities helps students comprehend and make meaning of new vocabulary words. Explicit teaching of new vocabulary words is necessary. (Spencer et al., 2017)
