Vocabulary Instruction Presented Prior to Reading in Two Basal Readers.
Ryder, Randall J.; Graves, Michael F.
Elementary School Journal, v95 n2 p139-53 Nov 1994
Examined six aspects of vocabulary instruction given to fourth and sixth graders prior to reading in two basal reading series. Found that words targeted for instruction were already known; instruction in the two series differed markedly; much of the instruction was not sufficient to improve comprehension; and instruction was not necessarily suited to targeted words and their contexts.
