Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement: Research on What Works in Schools
Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement: Research on What Works in Schools

by Robert J. Marzano

Everyone knows that students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are not well prepared for school, have the toughest time making the grade. But what hasn’t been so clear is what schools can do about it…until now. Here at last is a book that spells out how to overcome the deficiencies that hamper the achievement of so many students.

Drawing from 35 years of research, Robert J. Marzano uses detailed vignettes to provide you with the tools you need to rescue low achievers and boost the academic performance of all students:

• Eight factors that determine the success of a sustained silent reading (SSR) program

• A five-step SSR program extending through grade 10

• Eight characteristics of effective vocabulary instruction that enhance academic background knowledge

• A six-step process for vocabulary instruction in the major disciplines

• The vocabulary terms that are critical to students’ success in every academic subject
