Use Dictionaries for Word Learning with Caution.
Rhoder, Carol; Huerster, Patricia
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v45 n8 p730-35 May 2002
Discusses how students need independent word-learning strategies that they can transfer across a wide variety of school and personal texts. Suggests that what appears to work best in word learning is direct instruction in new vocabulary, typically offered prior to reading, through a combination of activities that engage students in discussion and elaboration on a word's meaning.
