The more words you know, the easier it is to draw connections with new ones – an important part of forming categories. As a student learns a new word, other words are attached to it. Simple categories of related words can serve as building blocks for more complex categories, thus helping to build cognitive skills.
All teachers know that a robust vocabulary gives students the communication skills they need to do well on tests and shine in the classroom – and the best way to ensure successful vocabulary instruction is to embrace new and engaging strategies that don’t take too much time away from other work.
To get the clock on their side and do what’s best for their students, teachers need to learn how to provide short and effective vocabulary mini-lessons that can be used at any point during class. Marilee Sprenger’s Vocab Rehab model offers teachers easy-to-implement 10-minute instructional strategies that can help time-strapped teachers ensure that their students have a sound grasp of both general and content-specific words across year levels and subject areas.
Vocab Rehab is part of the ASCD Arias series of publications providing concise answers to challenging questions in a convenient format that you can read in one sitting and immediately put into practice. Arias books are the next-generation, immediate-need resources for everyone committed to the success of each learner.
