Lesson Plan Details


Vocabulary Activities Package for Any Content

Marzano's research says it may take students up to 14 exposures to a word or term to own it. Are your secondary students stuck using boring vocabulary worksheets or exercises in your classroom to build exposures to words? Use your students’ multiple intelligences to help them interact with words on a personal level and build their vocabulary banks. Get your kids up and moving, using music and movement as well as dice, foldables, partners, small groups, drawing, acting, singing, and more in literacy centers or as a whole class. Use the Glance and Go! sheet for quick implementation of 15 different activities, enough for three weeks of different ways to interact with vocabulary or terminology. At a glance, you'll find the materials you need, step by step instructions, CCSS and and options to customize the activities for your students' needs. The full package overview give background information, with a sequencing and multiple Intelligence key, as well as a holistic evaluation scale. You will find links to additional information about vocabulary instruction as well. Six printables for students are also included, with 4 Google word chart activities. This 26-page pencil and paper package includes 15 different vocabulary activities ranging from 2-4 minutes per word for use with technical terms, your own vocabulary list, or an explicit vocabulary program. The package also includes 10 additional vocabulary ideas to differentiate for all of your learners. Use these fun and engaging activities on a scheduled basis, or present several to your students and let them choose the strategies that work best for them. Either way, this is the ONLY vocabulary package you will ever need. I have used these strategies successfully for over 10 years!

About the Teacher


Barbara Miller

I have taught English/Language Arts for over twenty years to remedial through gifted students from 7th to 12th grade, AP/dual credit university courses in three corporations and at one university. During my career, I have supervised and taught several student teachers and numerous pre-service teachers. Project Based Learning and choices that fit or extend learning styles and intelligences make my classroom activities engaging for students and filled with opportunities for academic growth. Many teacher professional development programs have supported my work. I hold an M.A. in Education and an Indiana High Ability Teaching License, am a Teacher Consultant for Indiana Writing Project, and have participated in many educator programs sponsored by the Lilly Endowment, National Consortium for the Teaching of Asia, National Endowment for the Humanities, US Department of State, Korea Academy for Educators, and Toyota International Teachers, among others. Additionally, I have been awarded many grants for classroom and school-wide projects, ranging from hundreds of dollars to $250,000. In addition, I have conducted professional development on writing workshop and differentiation in my own school, at conferences and events, and at schools in Peru and India. I am currently writing about my ancestors who taught Freedmen after the Civil War.
