Cillizza, Joseph; Devine, John M.
This teaching module concerns vocabulary as it relates to reading comprehension. Development of an extensive and accurate reading vocabulary is deemed essential for good comprehension. While most children have little trouble with concepts and vocabulary necessary for beginning reading (unless they speak a language which is not of the dominant culture), they may have trouble with meaning, starting at about the third grade. Upon completion of the teaching module, participants should be able to develop at least five methods or formats for teaching a vocabulary list of 20 words. Participants complete a preassessment test, choose tasks from a list of alternatives, and conclude the module with a postassessment test. (PB)
