Core Instructional Routines: How We Should Be Teaching Academic Language

coreroutines-cover1

In Core Instructional Routines: Go-To Structures for the 6–12 Classroom, coauthors Andrea Honigsfeld and Judy Dodge help teachers build background knowledge and literacy across subjects using Speak, Write, Read, and Listen (SWRL) routines. These create ample opportunities for creative collaboration, critical analysis, and student engagement.

"We believe the that the routines in this book will not only lay the framework for predictable structures and skill building," write Andrea and Judy, "but they will also provide opportunity for teacher autonomy, creative expression, and nurturing the desire to learn." In today's post, Andrea discusses vocabulary and explicitly teaching sentence formation instead of just words.
