Carolyn Zierenberg, a talented teacher at our school, put together a simple multilingual (English/Spanish/Hmong) glossary of academic vocabulary. She’s given me permission to share it on this blog and website.

This Glossary of Commonly Used English Academic Vocabulary took an incredible amount of work to complete.

Of course, a list like this is only effective as a supplement and follow-up to multiple classroom activities where these words are used in a meaningful way in context.

I’m adding this link to two lists — The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Math, Social Studies, & Science and The Best Websites For Developing Academic English Skills & Vocabulary.
