Overview

"Scott Greenwood examines vocabulary instruction and debunks approaches that center on definitions and memorization. Drawing from both principles and sound practice, Greenwood offers progressive teachers direction, support, and strategies for teaching effective meaning-making from new words." Greenwood provides not only rich, deep vocabulary teaching strategies, he also makes strategic connections to literature, the curriculum, and writing. He makes his book user friendly with plentiful classroom vignettes, portrayals of teachers in action, photos, and samples of student work. Extensive appendixes consist of reference materials that are both fun to read and convenient to use - from nonstandard words recently added to Webster's to strategies for solving analogies.
