Gay Becker has been an educator for 31 years. She has taught all grade levels with diverse populations. She has created products that are used with all populations and are based on best practices. Her products encompass vocabulary across the disciplines as well as across the grade levels. Her love of learning is exemplary and is contagious.
Gay Becker focuses on vocabulary. Students are not given the tools to decipher academic vocabulary without the aid of morphemic analysis. She has created TWS Word Walls that provide students and teachers the materials needed to understand not only word parts and how they work together but the etymology as well. By providing color coded Word Walls in all disiplines based on the top 300 Stems used in testing materials, students have an interactive classroom tool at their fingertips at all times.
