101 Strategies to Make Academic Vocabulary Stick by Marilee Sprenger

Veteran educator Marilee Sprenger explains how to teach the essential, high-frequency words that appear in academic contexts--and reverse the disadvantages of what she calls "word poverty." Drawing on research and experience, Sprenger provides a rich array of engaging strategies to help educators across all content areas and grade levels not only teach students a large quantity of words but also ensure that they know these words well. You'll find

  • An overview of how the brain learns and retains new words, including the three stages of building long-term memories: encoding, storage, and retrieval.
  • Encoding strategies to introduce words in novel ways and jump-start the memory process.
  • Rehearsal strategies to help students put words into long-term storage.
  • Review strategies to help students strengthen their retrieval skills and gain the automaticity needed for reading comprehension.
  • Ways to address planning and assessment as crucial, intersecting supports of a robust vocabulary program.

This comprehensive resource has everything you need to help your students profoundly expand their vocabulary, enabling them to speak, read, and write with greater understanding and confidence.
