This video takes you and your colleagues to schools that use smart, fun, and engaging strategies to build students' vocabulary and boost their knowledge of the key words they need to know for the Common Core State Standards. Drawing from the ASCD best-selling book Teaching the Critical Vocabulary of the Common Core: 55 Words That Make or Break Student Understanding, video scenes show teachers using fun strategies like jingles, movements, and graphic organizers to teach key words. Hear author Marilee Sprenger explain how to put brain research–based, time-saving strategies for mastering vocabulary into action. And introduce teachers to easy-to-implement, 10-minute or shorter mini-lessons that help students build a robust vocabulary and develop greater confidence in reading, writing, and testing.
