Teaching the Critical Vocabulary of the Common Core

Author: Marilee Sprenger
Publisher: ASCD
ISBN: 9781416615712
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Education

Your students may recognize words like determine, analyze, and distinguish, but do they understand these words well enough to quickly and completely answer a standardized test question? For example, can they respond to a question that says "determine the point of view of John Adams in his Letter on Thomas Jefferson' and analyze how he distinguishes his position from an alternative approach articulated by Thomas Jefferson"? Students from kindergarten to 12th grade can learn to compare and contrast, to describe and explain, if they are taught these words explicitly. Marilee Sprenger has curated a list of the critical words students must know to be successful with the Common Core State Standards and any other standardized assessment they encounter. Fun strategies such as jingles, movements, and graphic organizers will engage students and make learning these critical words enjoyable and effective. Learning the critical vocabulary will help your students with testing and college and career readiness, and will equip them with confidence in reading, writing, and speaking. Marilee Sprenger is also the author of How to Teach So Students Remember, Learning and Memory, and Brain-Based Teaching in the Digital Age.

In Building Academic Vocabulary: Teacher s Manual, Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering give teachers a practical way to help students master academic vocabulary. Research has shown that when teachers, schools, and districts take a systematic approach to helping students identify and master essential vocabulary and concepts of a given subject area, student comprehension and achievement rises. In the manual, readers will find the following tools: * A method to help teachers, schools, and districts determine which academic vocabulary terms are most essential for their needs * A six-step process for direct instruction in subject area vocabulary * A how-to to help students use the Building Academic Vocabulary: Student Notebook. The six-step method encourages students to learn critical academic vocabulary by connecting these terms to prior knowledge using linguistic and non-linguistic means that further encourage the refinement and deepening of their understanding. * Suggestions for tailoring academic vocabulary procedures for English Language Learners. * Samples and blackline masters for a variety of review activities and games that reinforce and refine student understanding of the academic terms and concepts they learn. The book also includes a list of 7, 923 vocabulary terms culled from the national standards documents and other publications, organized into 11 subject areas and 4 grade-level categories. Building Academic Vocabulary: Teacher s Manual puts into practice the research and ideas outlined in Marzano s previous book Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement. Using the teacher s manual and vocabulary notebooks, educators can guide students in using tools and activities that will help them deepen their own understanding of critical academic vocabulary--the building blocks for achievement in each discipline.

ISBN: OCLC:958069961
Release Date: 2016
Genre: Common Core State Standards (Education)

This project addresses the issue of Spanish Speaking English Language Learners having difficulty acquiring the academic vocabulary necessary to becoming successful in reading comprehension. Although schools have utilized vocabulary systems in the past, the new Common Core standards have left teachers without tangible supplemental materials or resources specifically targeted for 7th grade academic vocabulary while incorporating the rigor of the Common Core standards. This handbook provides a miniature curriculum for teaching 7th grade academic vocabulary with specialized instructions for English Language Learners embedded within the curriculum. My research documents our nation's academic challenges in meeting the needs of our Latino/Hispanic population. I found a large array of explanations as to why these challenges have not been met. It also exposes the ravaging cycle of effects visited upon students when the problem have not been properly addressed. Moreover, my research sheds light on productive solutions to aid in resolving the nation's conundrum of supporting our Spanish English Language Learners. This project adds to literature of the educational community of literature a handbook that is practical and ready to use in a 7th grade English Language Arts class that has Spanish speakers within it. It serves as a supplemental resource utilizing best practices and addresses the vocabulary acquisition of all students, including Spanish speakers. It delivers fun and interactive activities that promote academic language discourse as well as worksheets that can be copied and distributed for use.
