Abstract

Academic language, while a key component of language arts education and Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, is often poorly understood by educators. Academic language and its norms must be taught explicitly in language arts classrooms in order for students to be proficient writers of academic genres and for testing purposes. This project provides a literature review on academic language instruction and writing instruction at the secondary level. The guidebook for academic language includes several lesson plans to assist educators in teaching academic language and its features. The features of academic language are outlined using authentic Texts that teachers can use in their own classrooms.
