Content Area Vocabulary




Are your students having difficulty understanding textbook vocabulary? Lack of vocabulary knowledge is closely linked to the challenges many students experience in understanding the concepts presented in textbooks.

Learning the vocabulary of a specific discipline should be thought of as learning about the interconnectedness of ideas and the concepts they represent. So it is important to help students develop the language needed to learn sophisticated and complex concepts about various subject-specific topics.
