Getting Ready for the STAAR Redesign with Academic Vocabulary in Social Studies
Getting Ready for the STAAR Redesign with Academic Vocabulary in Social Studies




Academic vocabulary includes language used during classroom instruction, found within instructional materials, and encountered on assessments across all disciplines. This vocabulary has been a challenge for students on state assessments such as the STAAR Redesign. In this workshop, participants will evaluate social studies resources to determine commonly used academic words as they evaluate and practice strategies to help students make connections to these high frequency vocabulary words. We will use the Universal Design for Learning principles of representation and expression to reach struggle learners. With more complex understanding of academic language, students will increase their success in social studies and on the STAAR Redesign.
