Academic Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension
A series of theme-based individual lesson plans using a unique integrated visual approach to stimulate and facilitate learning and comprehension. While these plans have been, and are being very successfully used with students 3rd grade and above, they are not designed to replace current academic words appropriate for the respective grade levels. Each plan is designed to enrich, encourage and demonstrate the power of integrated learning techniques to provide advanced language skills. For example, the word derision may be no different than a made-up word: “gretious” to a student at first glance. However, with visual and context reinforcement, students begin to comprehend and become creative in their analysis rather than relying on rote memory. Early introduction of academic words can help avoid cramming for admissions and other exams. Many will use these plans as templates, substituting words based on standards for the grade being taught. Teachers, parents and home schoolers have the opportunity to engage students in conversation, writing, thinking while encouraging curiosity. The first book includes four complete theme-based lesson plans on language, procrastination, bullying and elaboration. Each lesson has an associated answer key.
