In this animation from SERVE, begin by watching students use the simple vocabulary words they already know before taking part in a vocabulary intervention. After the teacher appears, she engages students in rich conversations that introduce new vocabulary words. The students’ working vocabulary expands significantly to include words they would not have used prior to the intervention.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
