Overview

After 30 years of research and successful school implementations, here at last is the definitive guide for staff developers, principals, lead teachers, and everyone else who is leading an effort to implement ASCD's popular Building Academic Vocabulary program. Using a framework for direct instruction and a list of over 8,000 basic and advanced terms, Robert Marzano explains how to maximize students' understanding of new vocabulary by

  • Grouping words into semantic clusters to provide meaning through context.
  • Conducting a snapshot assessment to evaluate students' prior knowledge of vocabulary.
  • Deepening students' understanding of new terms by using comparison, classification, analogy, and metaphor activities.
  • Providing students with multiple exposures to words by using inventive games and other activities.
