Increasing Vocabulary in Preschoolers

Increasing Vocabulary in Preschoolers: Using Cognitive Science to Guide Pedagogy

The purpose of this project is to create and test a novel approach to building preschool teachers’ abilities to foster vocabulary and therefore, broader language skills among preschool children from low-income homes. The $50K 3-year grant (subcontract from Vanderbilt) serves to understand how children acquire vocabulary through storybook reading. The project evaluates different teaching strategies and how they affect children’s vocabulary.
