Academic Vocabulary for 8th Grade

Did you know that researchers have found that “85% of achievement scores are based on the vocabulary of the standards”? This is a startling number, especially since the new Common Core Standards, the Common Core State Exams, and the P.A.R.C.C. exam already contain challenging reading passages, tricky questions, and writing pieces.

Are you looking to review academic vocabulary with your 8th grade students? Did you know that researchers have found that “85% of achievement scores are based on the vocabulary of the standards”? This is a startling number, especially since the new Common Core Standards, the Common Core State Exams, and the P.A.R.C.C. exam already contain challenging reading passages, tricky questions, and writing pieces.

After watching my own students struggle, I started doing some research, and I found that there are a common link and thread amongst the questions, the standards, and the exams: THE VOCABULARY! Even the vocabulary is relatively consistent across grade levels, plus or minus some words and the difficulty level. Since I have Integrated students (and if you have ESL or Special Education students you can sympathize with me), comprehension and reading is a major struggle for my students; then add vocabulary to this. If they cannot get past the vocabulary in the question, most likely they cannot answer the question correctly; hence, my idea.

This activity is perfect for…

  • Stations & Centers
  • Independent Work
  • Vocabulary Practice
  • Review for State Testing

1. 45 ACADEMIC VOCABULARY TASK CARDS-20 Critical Verbs and 25 Critical Nouns
