Quick Tip Tuesday: Concepts and Vocabulary – Categories and Labels

August 17th, 2010

This week’s Quick Tip comes from Janet Allen’s recent book, Inside Words: Tools for Teaching Academic Vocabulary Grades 4-12. In Inside Words Janet provides teachers with important instructional tools that support building background knowledge; teach words that are critical to comprehension; provide guidance during reading and writing; develop a conceptual framework; and assess students’ understanding of words and concepts.

You can download one of these tools today titled Concepts and Vocabulary: Categories and Labels. This activity helps student think about a cluster of technical vocabulary words and students categorize and label the words based on common attributes.
