Teaching Words and How They Work

Vocabulary knowledge is the best support for student comprehension of narrative and information texts. This book is the first to apply new knowledge about the words in texts of different genres and levels that comes from digital analyses of thousands of texts. Elfrieda (Freddy) H. Hiebert shows teachers how to apply these new insights by making small changes to their vocabulary instruction. Many of these small changes involve adjustments that enrich and expand existing vocabulary building practices, such as using reading walls and conversations with students about words.
