Building Academic Vocabulary: Teacher's Manual
Marzano, Robert J.; Pickering, Debra J.
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
This manual is intended to assist teachers in implementing a comprehensive approach to teaching academic vocabulary at the classroom, school, and district levels. Using the manual's list of 7,923 terms, school and district teams can choose the most important vocabulary terms they want to teach to all students. All vocabulary terms are extracted from national standards documents, across 11 subject areas, and are organized into four grade-level intervals: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Included in the manual are all the tips and guidelines teachers need to implement this approach: (1) How to choose which academic terms to teach at the district, school, or classroom level; (2) A six-step process for teaching vocabulary terms so students develop deep understandings of the terms; and (3) Fun and engaging activities and games that help students add to their knowledge of vocabulary terms as they review and play with the terms they have recorded in their Student Notebooks.
