Help your students learn important content with this High-Frequency Academic Vocabulary Teaching Unit that is designed to help your secondary ELA students succeed in class and on standardized tests.
This academic vocabulary includes 5 weeks of instruction and includes 25 academic vocabulary words relating to informational texts and argument writing. Each week, students are introduced to five words at a time. Students receive a weekly academic vocabulary recording sheet where they focus on the five words in a new way each week.

A secured PDF document with quizzes, activities, and weekly vocabulary recording pages.
