Why Teach Semantics?
The meanings of words and the relationships of words are referred to as semantics. A reader’s breadth and depth of vocabulary contribute to reading achievement.
As the primary goals of reading and writing are determining and communicating meaning, it is important for students to understand the meanings of words and how words function in sentences.
As the majority of words in English have multiple meanings or shades of meaning, it is necessary for the reader to be flexible in determining the author’s intended meaning of a word within a sentence.
Semantics is one of the six evidence-based components of structured literacy.
Semantics (language structures) is one of the strands of Scarborough’s Reading Rope, which looks at the elements that make a skilled reader.
