Applied Vocabulary is a system of writing strategies used to build the vocabulary of content standards. Teachers choose from six critical-thinking strategies to support the essential question of a lesson. Students use the strategy to respond to the lesson.

This systematic approach to writing empowers students to explain what they have learned in a different way than the teacher taught it. The Applied Vocabulary teacher manual follows Five Key Practices for each critical-thinking strategy.

Teachers are prompted to

  1. Quantify teacher expectation (number of key terms used in their response).
  2. Model a teacher response that exceeds student expectations.
  3. Guide student choices.
  4. Secure student self-assessment with a scoring rubric.
  5. Prompt peer response to the quality of each other’s writing (PALs).
