Explicit academic vocabulary and language development using the research-based RULE of 3 (RAP) closes the achievement gap. The RAP has students REHEARSE, ANALYZE and PRODUCE interdisciplinary words. The implementation of ANALYZE phonics/ literacy resulted in 96% of primary students gaining 2-4 CELDT levels. Upper-grade students' gains closed the achievement gap from 12.9 to 1.8. The RULE of 3 received a Model of Excellence Award and will be featured on a PBS Our Kids national series.
