Thought for the Week: Building Academic Vocabulary
Marzano’s 6-Step vocabulary process is a research-based premise that states students need multiple exposures to words in order to increase their vocabulary. Research shows that students may need as many as 4 – 14 – or 40 exposures to words. 4 exposures are needed for those students who have a broad vocabulary, 14 exposures may be necessary for many students as they acquire new words, and 40 exposures may be necessary for those students who are English language learners.
