Preliminary Specifications of Content for Instruction in Subject-Area Vocabulary. Technical Note.
Cronnell, Bruce; And Others
The steps taken in compiling lists of technical terms for use in vocabulary instruction in the six subject areas of communication skills, science, music, social science, mathematics, and art are specified in this paper. The steps outlined included selecting words from both teacher and student textbooks at the kindergarten through grade six levels; limiting the number of terms to those at the average grade level for which they were found; grouping the words for each subject area, first into major categories and then into subcategories; and adding terms when needed to complete a conceptually related set. Appendixes contain the lists for each subject area and summaries of the frequencies of terms in each area. (FL)
