Teaching Vocabulary Expeditiously: Three Keys to Improving Vocabulary Instruction
Smith, Thomas B.
English Journal, v97 n4 p20-25 Mar 2008
Integrating vocabulary games and activities more often into the structure of the day, Thomas B. Smith establishes a word-rich environment for high school students to experiment with unfamiliar words in varying, playful contexts. Smith asserts that giving frequent opportunities for hearing, speaking, and writing in the typical context of the day is more beneficial to students than lists of vocabulary words to be tested on. (Contains 2 figures.)
