In part I, the authors introduce readers to Isabel Beck, Margaret McKeown, & Linda Kucan's three tiers of vocabulary: Tier 1 includes basic words, Tier 2 includes general academic or literary words, and Tier 3 includes words specific to subject areas. Additionally, readers learn the importance of vocabulary instruction, delineate the six steps of direct vocabulary instruction, identify Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary from the Common Core mathematics and English language arts standards, and discover how to build a classroom, school, or district vocabulary program. In part II, readers choose Tier 2 terms to integrate academic vocabulary into their classrooms based on classroom-ready descriptions and examples of each term. Part III allows readers to choose Tier 3 CCSS terms applicable to their subject area and grade level from into 116 measurement topics (groups of related words). The authors encourage readers to view the terms in parts II and III as starting points trying to teach them all would not allow teachers or students to spend sufficient time learning and understanding the vocabulary. The book ends with an alphabetic master list of all part II and part III terms, so teachers can easily find what they are looking for. For interested readers, there is an online-only list available at marzanoresearch.com/commoncore detailing the source of each term.
