Speaking, reading and writing skills are essential to skills. Reading, interpreting, and producing domain-specific text are fundamental practices. Interactive word walls resemble graphic organizers, strategically target academic vocabulary, and are student generated. Interactive word walls build academic vocabulary, reinforce important patterns, while providing an overview of each lesson and unit. They unify related terms and concepts, and visually display connections between vocabulary and experiences. The CER Framework helps student use claims, evidence, and reasoning statements to structure academic talk and writing. Anchor charts, sentence stems, and teacher prompts are pivotal elements in teaching students to apply CER in academic discourse. Science, Math, ELA, and Social Studies examples will be included in the presentation.
