NO MORE “LOOK UP THE LIST” VOCABULARY INSTRUCTION
By Charlene Cobb and Camille Blachowicz. Discover why old-fashioned methods for teaching vocabulary don’t work anymore, what the research shows does work, and how to put the research into action with these engaging strategies. Learn how to provide students with a full range of ways that a word is used, increase their exposure to words, deepen their engagement with them, and expand their overall word knowledge. Answers to teachers’ most commonly asked questions about vocabulary instruction are also addressed, including how to find time for meaningful vocabulary instruction, what words to teach, how to foster student independence using dictionaries and glossaries, and how to assess and hold students accountable.
