Preparation For Success In All Content
Areas
1. Academic Vocabulary-focus on the wording
and language directives of tasks
2. Analyze Questions and the Purpose-focus on
the decoding of the question and what is
being asked of the students
3. Transitioning to the PARCC scoring rubric
4. Regular exposure to/practice with PARCC
related tasks and questions in class and at
home
Academic Vocabulary
“Research has shown that students’ understanding of just 55 ‘critical
words’ contributes to 85% of success on standardized assessments that are
aligned with Common Core”
