Academic Language & Academc Vocabulary is the perfect book for any teacher, instructional coach, or school administrator who is striving to improve instruction. It contains the general academic language and the domain specific language essential to implementing the Common Core Standards. The book provides strategies that will definitely enhance response to intervention (RTI) and content area instruction. These strategies give students the skills they need to overcome the challenges they face in school. The book contains academic language lists (the mortar) and four content area academic vocabulary lists (the bricks) to help ELL, struggling readers, and any student who wants to succeed academically and prepare for college. The word lists alone are worth their weight in gold for students who lack the essential academic language and academic vocabulary to succeed in school. Learn the strategies and key words that will unlock learning for all of your students.

Great book for implementing the general academic language and domain specific language essential to succeeding with the Common Core in the classroom. The word lists are worth their weight in gold, and the strategies were fun for student, especially English Language Learners.
