How do we increase the number of words students know meanings foras well as the depth of meanings for those wordsas a day-in, day-out, across-the-school-day priority? This is the focus of well-known author Pat Cunninghams What Really Matters in Vocabulary, 2/e. In it she addresses the need for vocabulary instruction in our elementary schools today, asserts that traditional vocabulary activities probably dont accomplish much, and shows teachers how to work toward the goal of developing students vocabularies in all subject areas.
Here readers find effective and do-able vocabulary instructional activities, complete with examples and suggestions of how teachers can include these activities as they carry out instruction across the curriculum. The focus is on helping all students, and particular attention is paid to helping the increasing number of non-native English speakers in our schools today, as well as children who live in economic poverty.
