Two 30-minute programs on one DVD
This DVD is a great tool to show that effective vocabulary instruction is much more than just giving students a list of words. You can use the DVD with teacher groups and workshops to explain why it's easier for students to understand academic content when they have been taught the academic terms in your content standards. Demonstrations from elementary and secondary classrooms show examples of a research-based, six-step vocabulary teaching process. Watch actual classroom teachers walk through the vocabulary teaching process and use the student and teacher materials to build students' academic vocabulary. These classroom examples plus teacher tips ensure that teachers grasp the instructional process right away and find it easier to implement.
