Vocabulary. ERIC Digest.
Hodges, Richard E.
Intended for administrators and policymakers as well as teachers, this digest explores the nature of vocabulary and its implications for classroom instruction. After defining vocabulary and discussing some of the sources of English vocabulary, the digest examines how children's vocabularies develop. It then discusses the role of vocabulary instruction and ways that such instruction can go beyond teaching just new words to enhance students' understanding of how words are used. (HTH)
