    I've only gotten the watered down version, i.e. the report from the people who went to see him, but the words are:
    explain
    describe
    infer
    compare
    contrast
    analyze
    evaluate
    formulate
    trace
    okay, those are the only ones I can remember right now. His point with those, if I understand correctly, is that by teaching a simpler way to recall what each word means, you can raise achievement and close the gap. He's obviously coming at this from a multicultural angle and looking for ways to help students not be intimidated by common testing words.
