Raise the Vocabulary Bar
with Discussions4Learning
Introduce rich, academic, oral vocabulary through engaging discussions about dazzling fine art and realworld photos. No worksheets or drills. Just twenty to forty minutes a day, for just two to four days a week, and
you will see improved vocabulary and comprehension in all of your students regardless of their decoding skills!
The Difference
High-level, academic vocabulary to improve comprehension
Discussions4Learning enriches the print-based curriculum of the
language arts curriculum with the high-level vocabulary critical to
comprehension.
Explicit review of previously learned vocabulary Words are
deliberately revisited in context in subsequent weeks as students
discuss thought-provoking images.
Authentic, engaging contexts for language development
Dazzling images from around the globe and across time serve as
authentic, engaging contexts for language learning.
Fine art and cross-curricular connections
You can easily infuse fine art while reinforcing key concepts in
science and social studies through brilliant, compelling images.
Discussions4Learning includes four levels, A–D.
The levels can be used as early as grades K–3. The
vocabulary and images, however, are sophisticated
enough to use at the intermediate, middle school,
or high school levels depending on the vocabulary
and English proficiency levels of your students.
• Each level includes 96 lessons.
• Each lesson introduces 4–6 high-level academic vocabulary words in authentic, engaging contexts.
• Each lesson focuses on one fine art image or
real-world photo.
