Do any of you utilize Marzano's Six Step Process for Building Academic Vocabulary? This is a school wide push this year, and I am finally starting it this week. The whole process just seems so blah and dry to me. Teachers are expected to introduce 10 new words to second grade students each week, and have students complete a template for each word that they learn. This template includes the word, student definition, new learning (synonyms, antonyms, etc), drawing, and a place to evaluate their understanding. How can I keep my students engaged in this process when even I think that it is so dull and boring?
