Vocabulary Is Comprehension

Vocabulary Is Comprehension

By Laura Robb

Tackle students’ biggest barrier to complex text: word knowledge

In our rush toward complex texts, somehow we forget to put a new systematic vocabulary plan in place. Luckily, Laura Robb provides that instructional plan in Vocabulary Is Comprehension. The best part? Laura’s plan takes just 10 to 15 minutes, and much of it is spent in partner and independent work so this is no “add on” to squeeze in. All materials are included. There are 35+ lessons paired with 50+ complex texts that:

  • Cover academic vocabulary, figurative language, denotative and connotative meanings, and more
  • Align with specific CCSS vocabulary and writing standards
  • Include strategies for ELLs and developing readers, along with formative assessment
