“The importance of direct vocabulary instruction cannot be overstated. Vocabulary provides essential background knowledge and is linked to academic achievement. Effective teachers select terms for direct instruction and use a research-based process to teach those terms.”
Dr. Robert Marzano
This set includes slides of content vocabulary words connected to a study of animals. Each word is presented using Dr. Marzano’s recommendations for the explicit teaching of academic vocabulary. A child friendly meaning, example and visual representation is given for each term.
Included in this set are also printable vocabulary cards for your students. Students cut cards and create illustrations of each term and then can use these cards for matching games and activities.
