Vocabulary Instruction in the Middle Grades
Graves, Michael F.
Voices from the Middle, v15 n1 p13-19 Sep 2007
Michael Graves points out that it is only in the last 40 years that a rich base of theory and research about teaching and learning vocabulary has come into being. Grounding his article in this research, he lists some of the factors testifying to the importance of vocabulary and discusses what may be the most crucial fact about the task of teaching vocabulary. He then describes a comprehensive vocabulary program for middle school students. (Contains 1 figure.)
