The Challenges that Teachers FaceEnglish Language Learners must know the meaning of words in their own language before learning them in english.Readers must be exposed to the different contexts of words to fully know the word. Many words have multiple meanings.Not every student has the resources at home to assist them in learning vocabulary.

Tier 1:Words acquired through every day speech, usually learned in the early grades.Tier 2:Academic words that appear across all types of text. These are often precise words that are used by the author in place of common words. (i.e. gallop instead of run). They change meaning with use.Tier 3:Domain specific words that are specifically tied to content. (i.e. Constitution, lava). These are typically the types of vocabulary words that are included in glossaries, highlighted in textbooks and address by teachers. They are considered difficult words important to understanding content.

Shift 6:3 Tiers of Vocabulary

Use in Special EducationStudents may struggle to increase vocabulary because of poor memory skills, difficulty using word learning strategies, or lack of instruction. This may be a result of a language and/or learning disability, or poor instruction. Under these situations, schools can administer a responseto intervention program (RTI). RTI will then determine if the student requires additional instruction or special education services (Montgomery, 2007).
