Word Rating Guide

A Word Rating Guide (WRG) is a quick and easy diagnostic tool for vocabulary instruction.  A Word Rating Guide has been created for each subject.  Used as a pre-unit assessment, the WRG will let you know which words are familiar, somewhat familiar, and unfamiliar to your students prior to instruction. Used as a post-unit assessment, the WRG will let you document word learning as a result of your instruction, and allow you to see if more instruction is needed.   This tool can help differentiate instruction, as you can group students according to their level of background knowledge, or set up additional games and activities for those students who need more exposure to the words and concepts in the unit.

Here is a sample Word Rating Guide.  Please access the Word Rating Guides under Other Materials within each topic.
