Semantic Feature Analysis: Classroom Applications. Reading Aids Series.
Pittelman, Susan D.; And Others
This book discusses semantic feature analysis, a strategy that helps teachers focus students' attention on vocabulary and increase their sensitivity to language. The first half of the book deals with the theoretical foundation, reviews the research, and describes the basic teaching strategy of semantic feature analysis. The book's second half is devoted to classroom applications of this knowledge, and includes semantic feature analysis in content area lessons, in reading instruction, in integrated reading/writing lessons, as well as a semantic feature database lesson. Twenty-one figures are included, and 71 references are attached. (SR)
