As a graduate, I often feel overwhelmed with teacher talk. I have just participated in a graduate PD and we talked about the jargon that we were expected to know and how seasoned teachers just know the lingo. Thank you to all who participated in creating this table. I would recommend that it is handed out to all graduate teachers. I know there are more and maybe some lingo is school-specific. If you are a seasoned teacher and have a graduate at your school, perhaps you could spare some time and decode the acronyms for them. I know they would be most grateful.
