Ways to Win at Vocabulary Learning
Goodwin, Amanda P.; Cho, Sun-Joo; Nichols, Sally
Reading Teacher, v70 n1 p93-97 Jul-Aug 2016
This teaching tip identifies ways to "WIN" at vocabulary learning. Specifically, the approach conveys three morphological strategies in the mnemonic "WIN." These three strategies remind students to find smaller units of meaning within bigger words, look for those units in other words that they know, and notice the context. Each strategy is described with an example. Also, ways to integrate "WIN" within comprehension instruction and adapt instruction based on word difficulty are included. Overall, this teaching tip provides a framework for educators to use when designing and implementing effective word instruction.
