Editorial Reviews

Teaching Vocabulary in All Classrooms is not just a “cookbook” of strategies for developing vocabulary. It is a resource for research-based strategies in addition to discussion of how and why students benefit from vocabulary instruction. The topics of the chapters allow teachers to be more specific with instructional strategies and to focus time and effort where they will be most effective.   The book is a well-written blend of research, discussion, and instructional recommendations, such as strategies, activities, practices, and resources. It covers all aspects of vocabulary for all age levels, including special needs and ESL students, and ranges from the serious (SAT preparation for high school students) to the fun (word play and songs). -- Sandra Gandy, Governors State University   This book provides multiple ideas to develop student vocabulary learning and help them to think deeper and make better connections to our written and oral language. It offers numerous strategies with detailed directions that will help teachers understand how the vocabulary learning will take place, vocabulary instruction that takes place within brain-friendly contexts and not in isolation, and a quick reference layout that enables teachers to locate specific strategies. The balance of theory and practical strategies to meet learning goals help the reader process the in-depth concepts and make connections to the how and why of vocabulary instruction. -- Cathy Rivera, Educational Leadership Center (FL)
