  • 6 Step Process to Building Academic Vocabulary September 28, 2011 Terri Johnson Instructional Coach/Science Saint Joseph School District based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering
  • Goal of “Mini-lesson”:
    • Develop a systematic instructional approach for important academic terms.
    • Use the 6 Step Process to Building Academic Vocabulary within the Learning Cycle Developed through the Lesson Study.
    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
    based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering
  • Why?
    • Research shows a student in the 50th percentile in terms of ability to comprehend the subject matter taught in school, with no direct vocabulary instruction, scores in the 50th percentile ranking.
    • The same student, after specific content-area terms have been taught in a specific way, raises his/her comprehension ability to the 83rd percentile .
    based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering
  • Consider This
    • Background knowledge is more important to the understanding of reading than IQ.
    • Vocabulary instruction in specific content-area terms builds up student ’s background knowledge in content area.
    • Students who understand content for example, in a state mathematics standards document regarding data analysis and statistics have understanding of terms such as mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, and central tendency
    based on "Building Academic Vocabulary; Teacher's Manual" by Robert J. Marzano and Debra J. Pickering
  • Did you know…
    • With the person behind you, decide if following statements are true or false .
    • 1. Reading 14 minutes a day means reading over 1,000,000 words a year.
    • 2. Preschool or children ’s books expose you to more challenging vocabulary than do prime-time adult TV shows.
    • 3. Vocabulary can be learned through reading and talking.
    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)
