This expanded edition of the bestselling text and teaching resource incorporates the newest research in vocabulary learning and instruction into a complete and balanced program for all F–12 students, from those who struggle in school to those who excel. Literacy expert Michael Graves presents a four-pronged vocabulary program that he has developed and honed for over 30 years. The text includes theory, research-based strategies, vocabulary interventions, classroom examples, advice for working with English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) learners, discussion of next-generation standards and more.

The Vocabulary Book, Second Edition presents a comprehensive plan for vocabulary instruction from Foundation Year to secondary school – one broad enough to instruct students with small vocabularies, exceptional vocabularies and every child in between. Written by one of the top experts in the field, this practical book presents a research-based program with plenty of classroom examples and strategies that teachers can use. The comprehensive plan includes four parts: rich and varied language experiences, teaching individual words, teaching word learning strategies and fostering word consciousness.
