Teaching the Critical Vocabulary of the Common Core
55 Words that Make or Break Student Understanding
Your students may recognise words like determine, analyse and distinguish, but do they understand these words well enough to quickly and completely answer a standardised test question?
Students from preschool to year 12 can learn to compare and contrast, to describe and explain, if they are taught these words explicitly. Marilee Sprenger has curated a list of the critical words students must know to be successful with any standardised assessment they encounter.
Fun strategies such as jingles, movements and graphic organisers will engage students and make learning these critical words enjoyable and effective. Learning the critical vocabulary will help your students with testing and career readiness, and will equip them with confidence in reading, writing and speaking.
While this resource focuses on the US Common Core State Standards, it is a great resource for teachers to employ in teaching with the Australian Curriculum.
