"Current, conceptually sound, clearly written, and practical. The authors document and explain the interdependence of word form, structure, meaning, and use, and translate basic insights about word learning into detailed descriptions of direct and indirect vocabulary instruction. No important issue is left untreated. This book offers the most complete compilation and reviews available of word lists, instructional techniques, vocabulary programs, and vocabulary assessments. It will be an indispensable resource for teachers, curriculum and test designers, and researchers."Louisa Moats, EdD, Moats Associates Consulting, Inc.
"Vadasy and Nelson’s synthesis of multiple research disciplines is highly advantageous. It is rare to find such a comprehensive collection of research and practice in one book. The authors do an excellent job of providing effective and practical information on vocabulary learning and vocabulary instruction that is inclusive of diverse learners. This book is truly a 'must have' for any prospective or practicing primary or secondary educator who teaches vocabulary."Torri Ortiz Lienemann, PhD, differentiated learning coordinator, Norris School District, Firth, Nebraska
