Writing to Win Applied Vocabulary is a system of writing strategies for building the vocabulary of content standards. Teachers choose from over 12 critical-thinking writing strategies to support the essential question of a lesson. Students respond with a writing strategy to explain what they understand.

This systematic approach to writing empowers students to explain what they have learned in a different way than the teacher taught it. An Applied Vocabulary teacher manual follows five key practices for each critical-thinking writing strategy. Teachers are prompted to

  • Quantify their expectations (number of key terms used in the writing).
  • Model a written response that exceeds their expectations.
  • Guide student choices.
  • Secure student self-assessment with a scoring rubric.
  • Prompt peer response to the quality of writing with PALS (peer-assisted learning system).

Over three decades of research confirms the positive impact of writing to learn content standards.
