In Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement, Robert Marzano shows how a carefully-structured combination of two approaches - sustained silent reading and instruction in subject-specific vocabulary terms - can help overcome the deficiencies in background knowledge that hamper the achievement of many children. Readers will learn:The principles that underlie an effective sustained silent reading program, A five-step process for using sustained silent reading to enhance background knowledge, The defining characteristics of effective vocabulary instruction, A six-step process for direct instruction in vocabulary in each discipline, The vocabulary terms critical to students' success in every academic subject.
