Basic Vocabulary Instruction: Teaching Strategies or Teaching Words?
Morin, Regina; Goebel, Joseph Jr.
Foreign Language Annals, v34 n1 p8-17 Jan-Feb 2001
First-semester Spanish students were encouraged to acquire vocabulary through small- and large-group oral activities plus semantic mapping. A second group participated in similar oral activities but did not perform semantic mapping. A comparison of the two groups suggests a trend toward the effectiveness of semantic mapping as a strategy that helps novice learners recall and organize second language vocabulary. (Author/VWL)
