Veteran educator Marilee Sprenger explains how to teach the essential, high-frequency words that appear in academic contexts – and reverse the disadvantages of what she calls “word poverty”. Drawing on research and experience, Sprenger provides a rich array of engaging strategies to help educators across all content areas and year levels not only teach students a large quantity of words but also ensure that they know these words well. You’ll find

  • an overview of how the brain learns and retains new words, including the three stages of building long-term memories: encoding, storage and retrieval
  • encoding strategies to introduce words in novel ways and jump-start the memory process
  • rehearsal strategies to help students put words into long-term storage
  • review strategies to help students strengthen their retrieval skills and gain the automaticity needed for reading comprehension
  • ways to address planning and assessment as crucial, intersecting supports of a robust vocabulary program.

This comprehensive resource has everything you need to help your students profoundly expand their vocabulary, enabling them to speak, read and write with greater understanding and confidence.

Also available from Hawker Brownlow Education the Everyday Vocabulary Strategies Quick Reference Guide by Marilee Sprenger will help you increase students' vocabularies for greater reading success. This full-colour, glossy guide, includes strategies, games and classroom essentials you can use to create vocab lesson plans that are both exciting and effective. Explore strategies and rubrics for assessing vocabulary learning, and plan how to team with your colleagues to increase vocabulary across your year level or school.
