The Word-Spider: A Technique for Academic Vocabulary Learning in Curriculum Areas.
McComish, Johanne
Guidelines: A Periodical for Classroom Language Teachers, v12 n1 p25-36 Jun 1990
The "Word-Spider" approach to vocabulary development can be applied in all curriculum areas for both native and nonnative English speakers. It focuses systematically on seven important areas of word knowledge (sound, family, friends, patterns, situations, ideas, definition). Providing both repetition and a range of experience with a word, it can be teacher or learner driven. (14 references) (LB)
