3 Simple Tools to Support the CCSS Academic Vocabulary Shift

3 Simple Tools to Support the CCSS Academic Vocabulary Shift | AdLit | Scoop.it

The Common Core identifies six instructional shifts needed to effectively implement the standards in ELA/Literacy.  Shift 6 suggests an instructional change in the teaching of Academic Vocabulary. While there are many specific vocabulary standards in the K-12 Language strand, it’s helpful and important to look at Academic Vocabulary from the big picture view known as Shift 6.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 15, 2014 10:06 PM

Spell Up is a new Chrome experiment, a game designed for Chrome that allows you to use your voice to spell words, letter by letter. But be prepared, as you spell words you build a tower, and the higher the tower the more difficult the word. One mistake and your tower falls. If you have Chrome check out this free game. Here is a new way for students to practice their spelling and have fun.

This will also work on your Android and a version is available for the iPad and iPhone but you must type the words. To go directly to Spell Up https://spellup.withgoogle.com/

Are you Trans-Literate?-Education Closet

Are you Trans-Literate?-Education Closet | AdLit | Scoop.it

If you explore the Common Core Standards in great detail, you’ll find some easy ways to begin this kind of high-level integration.  One of the ways that I find extremely helpful is through Common Vocabulary.  Each grade and area of Common Core has specific vocabulary that would show up on word walls, in texts and resources that also can apply in the arts classrooms – either with the same meaning or with a different intention.  This can be an easy way to begin thinking about integration, and it also is helpful to students as they see these critical terms being used in multiple settings throughout the school.

'Getting Beyond "Interesting": Teaching Students the Vocabulary of Appeal to Discuss Their Reading is a practical application book that gives librarians all the tools they need to implement the teaching of both appeal terms and Book Hook writing and sharing. When students know how to write Book Hooks and have access to an easy-to-use system for allowing students to share Book Hooks, the result is greatly increased reading through the power of peer recommendations.'

Developing Students' Academic Vocabulary Helps Beat Achievement Gap

Developing Students' Academic Vocabulary Helps Beat Achievement Gap | AdLit | Scoop.it

At a small school district, I faced the challenge as an administrator of diminishing the achievement gap in the student scores, especially in math and science. For example, we noticed that in science there was a 40-point gap between Hispanic students passing the test versus the number of white students passing. Having been in the classrooms and having observed teachers teaching, I knew that they were not treating Hispanic students any differently than the white students. So why was there an achievement gap?
