A Context-Based Strategy for Teaching Vocabulary
Nelson, Deanna L.
English Journal, v97 n4 p33-37 Mar 2008
Students in Deanna L. Nelson's high school classroom study vocabulary gradually over a period of time. Students begin by collecting words from readings and listing them on a designated whiteboard. They prepare practice quizzes to exchange with peers and engage in frequent vocabulary discussions that emphasize recognition of context clues and other language decoding strategies. (Contains 2 figures.)
