Biemiller, Andrew; Andrew
American Educator, v25 n1 p24-28,47 Spr 2001
Examines several points supporting the argument for increased emphasis on vocabulary, including: the consequences of an increased emphasis on phonics; limited school promotion of vocabulary development; the sequential nature of vocabulary acquisition; and defining an essential vocabulary for high school graduates. Emphasizes the need for a more teacher-centered and curriculum-structured approach to ensure adequate vocabulary development. (SM)
