What is Word Lab Web?
Word Lab Web is a teaching tool that dramatically accelerates and improves vocabulary acquisition. The web-based program allows students to be self managers while differentiating the instruction and providing teachers with the data and time to provide individualized instruction when needed.
Word Lab Web’s instructional design features provide systematic review, intervention, instructional scaffolding, and integration into literature experiences and student background knowledge.
Word Lab Web’s combination of immersion, repetition, variety, relevancy, and feedback is based on research-based strategies that help students fully absorb new word meanings while teaching word-learning skills and improving reading comprehension.
Word Lab Web simplifies and compacts the process of pre-teaching words frequently found in literature and high-frequency words found in standard school texts (Academic Word Lists and Word Lab’s History Lists).
Word Lab Web is best suited for students from the 5th grade and up.
Word Lab Web currently works on personal computer browsers. Technology to allow the program to also run on mobile devices, such as an iPad, is currently being tested.
