Teaching the Critical Vocabulary of the Common Core

Author: Marilee Sprenger
Publisher: ASCD
ISBN: 9781416616764
Release Date: 2013-06-14
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.

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.
