Integrated word study in the middle grades

Vocabularians is a book for any educator who wants to help young adolescents increase knowledge and competence with word study while bringing interest, motivation, and even joy to their learning.

This thoughtful book highlights effective ways to develop students' vocabulary skills using art, music, games, and technology, as well as the more traditional reading, writing, speaking, listening, and critical thinking. It illustrates how to build word networks, flood the classroom with academic vocabulary, and incorporate three key word-solving strategies: teaching students to use context to clarify meaning; decipher words by breaking down prefixes, suffixes, and root words; and consult reference materials in authentic ways. By blending current research with real classroom experience and application, Vocabularians is an easy-to-use, customized-to-middle-school resource that will improve instruction and assessment right across the content areas.
