Developing Vocabulary Skills.
Woodard, Cynthia
In response to a directive to devise strategies to increase student performance in vocabulary development skills, as measured by standardized tests, this paper suggests some of the following strategies: (1) teach word origins and structural analysis; (2) use semantic mapping/webbing; (3) show students how to attack analogies; (4) read aloud; (5) dramatize; (6) show students how to use the dictionary; (7) cloze sentences; use computer programs. Two "practical solution strategies" and sample lessons are presented (along with accompanying activities). Appended is a table containing prefixes and suffixes that merit instruction. Contains 16 references and a list of 3 interviewees. (NKA)
