Bringing Words to Life and into the Lives of Middle School Students
Moen, Christine Boardman
Voices from the Middle, v15 n1 p20-26 Sep 2007
While strongly endorsing a multi-pronged approach to vocabulary instruction, Moen takes pains to include and even emphasize work with English Language Learners. By adhering to the principles of A.C.T. (Access to texts, individual Choice of reading material, and Time to read), Moen finds myriad ways to make learning words a creative and social process that increases opportunities for practice and retention. [Contains 4 figures and 2 sidebars: (1) "Side Trip: Ease into Meaningful Vocabulary Instruction" (Lisa Storm Fink); and (2) "Side Trip: Fun and Learning Go Hand in Hand" (Nancy Frey).]
