"This book addresses not only the need for vocabulary development, but also tools to use in the classroom. I liked how easy the tools and strategies were to work into everyday classroom activities and across the curriculum. Very practical."
"Goes to the next level by focusing on increasing the number of vocabulary words taught and teaching the students so that they can become more independent vocabulary learners—the end goal of all learning. You can develop a complete, holistic vocabulary program for your school."
"Very important for everyone working with students on developing literacy and improving their overall education. Vocabulary instruction is a critical topic, and there is a great need for a well-developed program that can be readily implemented. This is one of the most thorough books on the topic."
"If you want a well-researched, complete, easy-to-use resource filled with effective strategies for teaching vocabulary, look no further. Lubliner and Scott have done an excellent job of marshalling the best ideas on vocabulary development and teaching. This book will definitely be on my bookshelf."
"Lubliner and Scott have researched and written a treatise that shows teachers, especially those working with mandated programs, how to integrate social studies and science instruction into their curriculum. Word study becomes the catalyst for increased student learning in all content areas."
"As a literacy coach, I was particularly interested in the variety of problem-solving strategies and cue cards in this book. This links directly to our language arts program and could serve as a wonderful supplement as teachers plan their lessons."
"As a bilingual literacy coach working primarily with English learners, it is so helpful to have a resource that addresses a critical component of language development with practical strategies."
"I was intrigued by the innovative strategies for the older student. The book addresses the difficult realities with secondary students who come into the US educational system with little or no English instruction."
"With district and state mandates and teachers restricted by daily schedules, it is refreshing to find simple strategies that we can implement in our limited time."
"At last, a book that exemplifies best practices in vocabulary instruction while using research to substantiate their use."
"Provides effective, doable strategies to promote vocabulary development. The variet of activities and strategies gives students, especially English Language Learners, balanced vocabulary instruction."
"The materials will guide administrators and district personnel in making schoolwide/districtwide reforms that benefit students and support teachers."
