        Common Core in ELA/ Literacy: Shift 6 – Academic Vocabulary | Engage NY

        This video features a discussion between NYS Commissioner of Education John B. King Jr., David Coleman (contributing author to the Common Core) and Kate Gerson (a Sr. Fellow with the Regents Research Fund) addressing Shift 6 – Academic Vocabulary. By unpacking Shift 6, the discussion addresses the "tiers" of vocabulary (see Isabel Beck's work, for example) and the choices teachers need to make regarding the explicit teaching of "academic" vocabulary.
