Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement: Research on What Works in Schools Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover how a carefully structured combination of two approaches--sustained silent reading and instruction in subject-specific vocabulary--can help rescue low achievers and boost the academic performance of all students.

Book News Annotation:

Marzano (Cardinal Stritch University) shows how a combination of two approaches--a five-step sustained silent reading process and a six- step process for instruction in subject-specific vocabulary terms-- can help overcome the deficiencies in background knowledge that hold many students back. Vignettes suggest how the methods might be implemented in elementary, middle, and high schools. A 66-page appendix of 7,923 vocabulary terms, organized into 11 subject areas and four grade-level categories, is included.
