3 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Why teach vocabulary? "Teaching specific terms in a specific way is probably the strongest action a teacher can take to ensure that students have the academic background knowledge they need to understand the content they will encounter in school." - page 1

4 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Example: " Carving is appropriate for most green and blue slopes, and even some black slopes. However, if you try to carve through moguls, especially in packed powder or corn snow, you're going to face-plant." (highlight words you don't know)

5 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Experiences that give students background knowledge: “Academically Advantaged” versus “Academically Disadvantaged”

6 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Before you start - Create a list of vocabulary terms All identified course vocabulary terms are currently in the CTE Rigor Site – curriculum maps – select course from dropdown menusCTE Rigor Site Unidentified course vocabulary terms are in process of being identified. Visit wiki –

7 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Step 1 – Initial Information: Introduce New Term Provide a description, explanation, or example of the new term. Find out what they know or think they know Clarify misconceptions, build on accurate information (Think, Pair, Share strategies.) Help build an understanding of the term (Think, Pair, Share – linguistic and non-linguistic strategies)

8 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Note: This does not involve presenting a definition or asking them to look up a definition!!!!

9 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Working with ESL Students: Step 1 If possible, explain, or have someone else explain term in student’s native language. Pair students or triads of students with the same native language together Solicit help from a bi-lingual teacher’s aide Provide some sort of non-linguistic representation

10 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Step 2 – Students Restate Term “Informal Information” Ask students to restate description, explanation or example in their own words. Provide for a more natural starting point – connect prior experiences and knowledge.

11 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Provide A Basis for Understanding An engineering student designed a wooden part to a project that required a hole drilled like this: When questioned as to how that could be done, replied “use a right angle drill.” What understanding was missing?

12 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Assignment: With a small group, discuss how your assigned strategy can be used to provide “informal understanding” (use corners) Report back to the workshop participants

13 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Strategies Clock Buddies Academic Notebook Frayer Model Inspiration – refer to books (available in all schools via the Novell Launcher) Inspiration Corners Mirror Lines

19 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Represent with Graphics Problem-Solving Process

20 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Dramatize with cartoons and speech balloons I have a new and different idea! Innovation

21 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Does not always have to be freehand. Use: Clip Art Tracings Cut-out pictures Other ideas?

22 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Working with ESL Students – Step 3 Non-linguistic representation is extremely important when working with ESL students.

24 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Notebook Styles and Organization (work on handout) Organize by theme or unit Create headings in margins Color code Use alphabet on bottom of page Can be used year to year in sequential courses Can be used as integration tool with other courses Provide space for students to add selected items they learn on their own May be adopted and required school-wide

25 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Revise and Add to Notebook Entries Highlight prefix or suffix Identify synonyms or antonyms Create additional pictures or graphics List related words Add cautions or reminders of common confusions Translate in native language (ESL students)

33 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Possible Activities (Step 4 – interaction) Free Association Sentence Stems Venn Diagrams Double Bubble Matrix Classify Terms Solving and Analogy Problems Solving and Analogy Problems Creating metaphors * Note: These activities align with the 9 Marzano strategies. – See CTE Rigor Site.CTE Rigor Site

34 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Review Game Activities (Step 6 - Review) What is the Question? Vocabulary Charades Name That Category Draw Me Talk a Mile a Minute Use at beginning or end of class period Use when students are lethargic or need energized Use for review

35 based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering Plan to Implement: Schedule Time: – Direct instruction for Step1 (Introduce), Step 2 (Restate) and Step 3 (Non-linguistic representation) – Student interaction time for Step 4 (Term interaction), Step 5 (Sharing), Step 6 (Review) Monitor accuracy of student work Keep track of student progress
