A strategic approach to direct vocabulary instruction
A research-based reason for incorporating vocabulary into instruction Strategies to improve vocabulary instruction Training materials that you can use with your teachers as necessary
Provides concrete strategies for implementing the Common Core. An electronic version can be found on the wiki. One chapter describes a vocabulary protocol called CODE.
Connect Organize Deep-Process Exercise
Words are not just words… Common Core State Standards, Appendix A, p.32
1. Vocabulary is foundational for improved literacy 2. Academic vocabulary is at the core of the core Tier 2 Words - commonly used in writing Tier 3 Words - specific to discipline 3. Vocabulary Fuels Learning
Vocabulary Knowledge Rating Complete the “Pre-Assessment” posted in your agenda Use the following scale to rate your reaction to each word: 1.Never Heard Of It 2.Heard Of It 3.Know It 4.Know It and Can Explain It You have 2 minutes to complete all 18 words (about 6 seconds per word)
Vocabulary Mapping Group the words

Games- Bingo, Jeopardy Use It or Lose It- Students use vocab words in writing assignments Peer Practice- One student is the coach and one is the player
Did you know they had games??? Click on “Space Race” or “Scatter”
Connect- provide activities that allow students to make connections with the words (word wall, decoding, pre-assessments, KWLs) Organize-provide opportunities for the students to understand how the words connect with one another and the bigger picture (concept maps, word sorts) Deep Process-have students use thinking strategies and various forms of representation to develop a deep understanding of the words (storytelling, metaphors and similes, Voice Thread) Exercise- allow for opportunities to practice using the words (games, Quizlet)

Ecosystems- terrestrial vs. aquatic ecosystems, photosynthesis, single-celled producer (algae) Weather- heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation) Human Body Systems- genetics, muscular system, nervous system, blood cells, digestive system
Item Analysis 5.E.1.3 Explain how global patterns such as the jet stream and water currents influence local weather in measurable terms such as temperature, wind direction and speed, and precipitation. 5.P.3.1 Explain the effects of the transfer of heat (either by direct contact or at a distance) that occurs between objects at different temperatures (conduction, convection, or radiation).
Item Analysis Lesson 4 – American Weather: proximity to water; water and soil heat and cool at different rates Lesson 6 – What Drives the Weather? Sun’s energy heats air, water, and land; convection chamber demodemo
CMAPP Days 65-66: Heat Transfer Alignment Lesson: review convection, conduction, and radiation
Take a few minutes to jot down your ideas for presenting this back at your building Who needs to hear this? When will they be able to hear it? How will I know they heard it?
