 Dear English teachers,

In light of the recent research on the importance and impact of direct vocabulary instruction in raising achievements in English as a global language, a vocabulary task will be piloted. Based on the results of the Module E pilot, changes in vocabulary assessment will be introduced.
This new vocabulary task will be based on knowledge of the items in Band III.  We therefore recommend that you target specific vocabulary instruction based on Band III, beginning with your 10th and 11th grade classes this year. Suggestions and information can be found by clicking on the links below and on the vocabulary icon.
