Description: Academic language -- the formalized language of school -- builds a foundation which helps students to define terms, form concepts, and construct knowledge. As academic language becomes part of the fabric and instructional culture of a school, then academic literacy and success will develop in every classroom. Students who are English Language Learners or from families with limited formal education may need explicit instruction in academic language in order to succeed. Filled with hands-on instructional strategies, this practical guide helps teachers in all content areas and grade levels to explain in simple terms the importance of academic language and literacy to their students and provide the support and scaffolding that will help all learners academically succeed. The author has included many indispensible tools such as an extensive list of key academic language terms for each grade level from Kindergarten through Grade 12.
