Marzano’s 6 Steps Process for Teaching New Terms

  • Teacher provides a description, explanation, or example of the new term

  • Students restate the description, explanation, or example in their own words

  • Ask students to construct a picture, symbol, or graphic representing the term

  • Periodically ask students to discuss the terms with one another

  • Involve students periodically in games that allow them to play


P.A.T.T. members ideas for using word clouds to teach vocabulary

  • As a pre-assessment, students create a word cloud of vocabulary words that they are not familiar with.

  • Create a word cloud in a shape that represents the vocabulary list (tagxedo only)

  • Students type the vocabulary word and the key word next to it (use ~ to connect two words)

  • Create many word clouds and then put them side-by-side

  • Students create a word cloud describing a specific vocabulary word. The class states the vocabulary word described.

  • Create a word cloud of beginning sounds, rhyming words, or words that begin with the letter?

  • Brainstorm examples of a specific vocabulary word.
