Multimeaning Words and Reading Comprehension: Implications for Special Education Students.
Paul, Peter V.; O'Rourke, Joseph P.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v9 n3 p42-52 May-Jun 1988
Poor readers often know only the most common meanings or nuances of multimeaning (polysemic) words frequently encountered in reading materials. Teacher-directed, systematic vocabulary instruction must focus on specific problem areas. A three-step plan for teaching multimeaning words is proposed, emphasizing recognition and classification of word meanings and nuances. (JW)
