This session provided clarification of when to use Word Mapping and LINCS. Word Mapping is more intense and comprehensive, so it may have the most impact on domain specifc vocabulary which would be considered Tier 3 words. High ultility words may be taught through LINCS or Word Mapping. Regardless of the strategy, we were reminded that instruction needs to be explicit, tap into multiple modalities and connect to academic expectations.
