Vocabulary at the Centre
Vocabulary is not only the stuff of language – it is, arguably, the stuff of thought itself. Without adequate vocabulary, our students, especially those whose background knowledge does not coincide with what they need to know in school, cannot hope to succeed. And although teaching vocabulary is assumed to take place primarily in English class, vocabulary is, in fact, at the centre of all classes.
This book will help teachers integrate vocabulary instruction with English so that students not only expand the scope of their vocabulary, but develop their skills as lifelong learners of words and indulge their own innate joy about language. The detailed strategies provided within this book go beyond rote memorisation and can be incorporated into daily lesson plans.
