Chapter 6. Vocabulary's CODE

Vocabulary's CODE in a Nutshell

Vocabulary's CODE is a strategic approach to direct vocabulary instruction that helps students master crucial concepts and retain new vocabulary terms. Students work their way from initial exposure to in-depth understanding through a series of progressive learning activities, which help students "crack" Vocabulary's CODE. This learning series entails

  • Connecting with new words.
  • Organizing new words into meaningful categories.
  • Deep-processing the most important concepts and terms.
  • Exercising the mind through strategic review and practice.
