    Academic Vocabulary

    A teacher resource for 5th to 7th grade English Language Learners in Texas developed from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) and Mathematics



    Module 1 is one of two presentations on informational text structure, focusing on students in Grades K-5; Module 2 addresses students in Grades 6-12 and is posted separately. Both modules are interactive and designed to provide key principles and practices that support classroom literacy instruction. Each module provides resources useful to schools working to improve literacy instruction, as well as technical assistance providers and others interested in school improvement. 


    In these modules, participants will:

    • understand the research that supports instruction in informational text structures,

    • learn about key instructional strategies that help students recognize various text structures and use that knowledge to improve their comprehension, and

    • explore tools and resources to help in planning and delivering effective text structure instruction.
