    Best Enjoyed with Building Background Knowledge For Academic… by Robert J. Marzano, March 19, 2006

    This book was worth the purchase because of the leveled word lists for ALL subjects. Almost 8,000 for 11 subjects – that includes all the topics covered in Social Studies, noncore classes, all leveled by grade range.

    It does refer to the accompanying Marzano work often and I found I needed to purchase both to receive the full amount of understanding I wanted on the subject.

    You need this if you are wondering how to start a vocabulary program. You would be interested in the list if you already have a vocabulary program.

    This book changed the way I teach vocabulary! I’ve tried for years to improve vocabulary instruction in my classroom, and using the strategies from this book is the first time I’ve observed real, solid and enjoyable vocabulary learning in my students! This book has everything you need “soup to nuts” to set up a vocabulary program in your room. The best part is, you can do in about 15 minutes per day! I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It’s an easy read. The vocabulary lists make up the bulk of the book. Reading the actual information in this book took me less than an hour! It is a tremendous resource I refer back to all the time!

    I found some great advice on teaching vocabulary for my middle school social studies class. I especially liked the graphic organizer where students must write their own definition and draw a picture to illustrate the concept. I used it for some Ancient Civilization terms and my students quickly grasped the concepts I taught them.

    Another excellent book on Digi-architecture, February 11, 2010

    This review is from: Manufacturing Material Effects: Rethinking Design and Making in Architecture (Paperback)
    Materials and effects are age-old themes of architecture.
    Tectonics, joinery, and permanence are the key themes that
    resurface over and over again in the theory and practice of
    architecture. Now the grounds are fast shifting due to awesome
    new tools available for architects.

    Digital parametric design and manufacturing process has freed
    “formal imagination” and “material imagination”.
    In this volume, use of materials and their aftermath
    effects are pushed to edge. Using both emergent materials
    and innovative application of conventional materials,
    desired dynamic and adaptive formal/surface/spatial
    effects are achieved.

    Beginning with introductory essay by Prof. Kolarevic and
    Prof. Klinger,the book introduces case studies of multiple
    architects, researchers, and vendors. Key built projects by
    Herzog de Meuron, SHoP, Barkow Leibinger, SANAA, OMA, etc
    focus on the actual materiality and fabrication aspect.
    Experimental projects are as much provoking, if not more,
    as built projects.

    This is a key publication (along with “Architecture in the
    Digital Age: Design and Manufacturing”, edited by Prof. Kolarevic)
    for those who seek cutting-edge architectural technology,
    innovative material application, and pioneering spatial effect-making.

    I bought this book for my friend, now he recommends me to read it. He said ‘ You will never know what I’ve found in it!’, seems it really worth to have.
