Marzano's Tiers 1, 2, and 3 words will be discussed, and teachers will engage in activities with words from their own content standards. Although appropriate for teachers of all grade levels and disciplines, information regarding a national paradigm shift in high school vocabulary instruction (as evidenced by recent changes in the SAT) will be discussed.
