Explicit vocabulary instruction is often omitted from content-driven courses. This is troublesome since there are thousands of “tier-3” subject-specific terms, which are not common in everyday conversation, but are crucial for understanding different subject areas (Marzano).

Research shows that explicit vocabulary instruction is most effective when it includes active involvement, multiple learning experiences, context, multiple exposures, and student-friendly definitions (Harmon & Wood, Moore, Hanson & Padua).
The items in the following section detail what must be submitted for evaluation. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1, 3, and 4 and a “Yes” for all artifacts submitted for Part 2.
Submit student work that demonstrates competence with the “active learning” portion of explicit vocabulary instruction.
Also, submit one video that shows students engaged in one of the explicit instruction strategies used during the lesson.
