Decoder Ring Item: 224
Assessments use academic language—universal and cross-curricular words found in prompts, questions, and directions (e.g., compare, explain, argue, interpret, etc.). While growing students’ academic vocabularies, be sure to weave these individual words and phrases into complex tasks and require students to decode them. Using the Decoder Ring, teach students how to interpret this secret language and attack these prompts with confidence. Rings are expandable and have a strobe-light push-button.
