Ignite! Learning today released the new embedded Academic Vocabulary enhancement, designed to improve comprehension of core concepts through the elevation and integration of topic-specific academic vocabulary terms and definitions.

Based on foundational research by Isabel Beck, Margaret McKeown, and Linda Kucan, Ignite! has incorporated subject matter specific “Tier 2” academic vocabulary words across all Math, Science & Social Studies topics. Ignite! believes that vocabulary development comes easier in the course of routine whole-class instruction with features like interactive context notes reinforcing proper usage, interactive media based definitions for all terms, and real-time checks for understanding for all learners.
