Academic Language Development

Velázquez Academic Vocabulary Essentials Sets

Velázquez Academic Vocabulary (VAV) was developed in response to the new standards which demand a more rigorous academic language use in the classroom. VAV is needed because traditional academic vocabulary (AWL) is not sufficient to meet language requirements in content classrooms and in assessments.

  • Help ELLs acquire the most frequent content-based academic vocabulary and improve engagement in the classroom
  • Provide primary language support in content areas
  • 3,000 high frequency cross curriculum academic vocabulary selected from K-12 textbooks and state tests
  • Divided by subject (ELA, Math and Science) and grade level (3-5, 6-8 and 9-12)
