A new resource that provides a fresh, exciting look at Word Study!

The premise of Knowing Words is that teachers need to help students go beyond a simplistic understanding of words to a deeper appreciation of words on many levels. Students need to realize the power of words - to entertain, persuade, describe - and to recognize how writers create powerful texts.

The functions of words:

  • To convey meaning through reading, writing and speaking
  • To influence and persuade
  • To describe
  • To entertain

The features of words:

  • Word structure
  • History
  • Evolution of words

This professional learning resource is organized around the functions and features of words.

Knowing Words is designed for elementary teachers, Grades K-6. Each concept and idea is presented with concrete examples of how to apply this knowledge in elementary school settings. Knowing Words will be a valuable resource to support any language arts curriculum.
