Academic vocabulary can be difficult to understand. The CCSS (Common Core) standards are riddled with academic vocabulary, so to make the standards easier for students to understand, I scanned all the anchor standards and looked for the words that I felt may stump students. I tend to take their vocabulary knowledge for granted, and I know many students may to be too shy to ask what "relevance" means. I created these to help me teach the standards.
My idea is to put the words in the standards for the day up next to my "I Can Statements"
as I go over the standards and just review that academic vocabulary. These are words that students will see all during school and beyond graduation. They are a part of the ACT, SAT, and other nationally recognized assessments.
Feel free to use them in a way that works best in your classroom, but my hope is that if I make the vocabulary visible and often, students will gain recognition.
