Introduction

Wordle - Questioning.png

The purpose of this course is to facilitate the inclusion of academic vocabulary in all subjects. Students need to be able to understand the academic instruction and texts they encounter in the classroom. The ability to do so is greatly facilitated by the acquisition of academic vocabulary. This is the language used in textbooks, reference resources, exams, and lectures. Most students do not come across this vocabulary outside of the scholastic environment. Much of this vocabulary is content specific and is essential to attaining deep understanding of concepts. However, there are specific terms that are used repeatedly across grades and disciplines, which are critical to the progression of literacy skills.
