TESOL Launches New Reading and Vocabulary Interest Section

by David Cutler | 02/14/2020
TESOL is excited to announce the debut of the Reading and Vocabulary Interest Section (RV-IS). This new Interest Section informs teachers, materials writers, curriculum designers, test developers, and those who set educational policy for language programs, about recent advances in our understanding of the process of learning to read, acquiring vocabulary, and the process of reading itself. The RV-IS aims to promote research in these areas as well as action plans for promoting better reading and vocabulary practices among stakeholders. 

Membership in any of the 20 Interest Sections offered by TESOL is open to all current TESOL Members and can be joined through myTESOL, the Association's virtual networking hub. 

For more information on this new Interest Section , please visit the RV-IS community page within myTESOL
