Vocabulary Plus: Comprehensive Vocabulary Instruction for English Learners
Frumkin, Rhoda
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v20 p53-68 2010
"Vocabulary Plus" is an interactive strategy which links vocabulary development with content area learning for English learners. This strategy uses interactive read-alouds of thematically- connected informational text matched to the grade-appropriate state standards and content of core subjects. When using "Vocabulary Plus", teachers choose motivating texts and use a tiered system of importance to select target vocabulary appropriate for both language and content area learning. They create graphic organizers and other visuals to illustrate relationships among target vocabulary words, and engage students in activities designed to reinforce and expand their understanding of target vocabulary.
