Teaching Basic, Advanced, and Academic Vocabulary: A Comprehensive Framework for Elementary Instruction (Carefully Curated Clusters of Tiered Vocabula

Robert J. Marzano

Construct a strong foundation for literacy development and academic achievement. Based on a robust analysis of high-frequency words, Dr. Robert J. Marzano identifies more than 8,000 basic, advanced, and academic vocabulary terms for grades K-5. The terms are organized into 444 semantic clusters, which have been carefully curated to provide a rich semantic context for students and aid their learning.

Use this resource to help students learn a tiered vocabulary and close the achievement gap in education.

  • Understand the importance of students having strong foundational vocabulary and its effect on academic achievement.
  • Learn the cluster approach to vocabulary instruction and how it helps students gradually learn the unique features of terms.
