The Effects of Focused Academic Vocabulary Instruction on Underperforming Math Students
The Effects of Focused Academic Vocabulary Instruction on Underperforming Math StudentsDuring the 2005–06 academic year, teachers implemented Marzano’s six-step vocabulary program in the lowest-performing sixth-grade math class at a Tennessee school.

This report summarizes the methods and findings of the effectiveness of the six-step process in improving the confidence and test scores of the math students.
