This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Words Their Way: Vocabulary Their Way with American History shows middle and secondary level American history teachers how to engage in history in order to ignite student debates over topics or issues; read, write and think like historians to help students organize the domain-specific vocabulary words into ways that make sense; use general academic vocabulary and language to help students explore and learn about the past; and tap into the powerful roots of English to become equipped with the tools to help students become independent word learners for the rest of their lives. After setting the stage for teaching vocabulary in history, 12 independent American history units cover the four stages in domain-specific vocabulary instruction and related core activities and strategies, including building background knowledge, thinking like a historian, connecting vocabulary in context, and assessing vocabulary knowledge. The units parallel eras in American history and the related chapters generally found in American history textbooks. They provide flexibility for use as the teacher sees fit, with an eye to students’ needs and instructional objectives. Three helpful appendices include a look at the big picture graphic organizers customized for teach of the 12 units, three generative vocabulary assessments, and history teachers’ favorite go-to generic graphic organizers and ready-to-use blank templates.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. This practical guide gives mathematics teachers vocabulary-rich activities and strategies that target the important content objectives they already teach, and reflect the expectations of their state or the Common Core standards. The book’s 12 hands-on teaching units address three areas of study covered in a typical mathematics class or textbook–geometry, measurement, and numbers and operations–and cover such topics as lines, angles, and polygons; properties of quadrilaterals; measurement area, perimeter, and volume and fractions. Each unit provides specific directions, language, reproducible materials, supporting activities, and assessments to help teachers effectively and efficiently target the different types of vocabulary needed for academic success–domain-specific and general academic vocabulary and language–all centered on the content that teachers already teach. Aimed at fourth and fifth grade teachers, but also useful to others who teach units on geometry, measurement, or fractions, Words Their Way: Vocabulary for Elementary Mathematics does not seek to replace the classroom mathematics text, but instead serves to explicitly support the learning of academic vocabulary so that students will do better when they work in their basal or other materials.
