Teacher Appreciation Dinner

Some words are more important to teach that others. Tier 1 words are those that students already know when they come to school (clock, baby, happy). Tier 2 words are high frequency words students will likely encounter in their school reading yet probably don't know well (coincidence, absurd, industrious). Tier 3 words are domain-specific words, such as peninsula, metamorphic, which are primarily used in content areas.
Tier 1 words don't need to be taught explicitly because students already know them and Tier 3 words should be introduced during content area classes. Teachers should base most vocabulary instruction on Tier 2 words.
