Academic vocabulary includes words used in academic dialogue and texts.  For example, rather than using the simple verb watch, an academic term would be to observe. Academic vocabulary words help students understand oral directions and classroom instructions as well as comprehend text across different subject areas. The IAR test uses academic words in the tasks they present to students.  These words are important to use across contents and grade levels in questioning and in discussions.  This training will examine how important vocabulary instruction is for student success.
