I love this book. Write some more!
Joseph W. Guenther, University of Wisconsin, Platteville
I like the overall presentation of the text. Given the emphasis on reading in middle and high school, I would think it would have a wide audience. I would consider this text as a supplemental or suggested text as it does enhance the content of the course I teach.
Nancy Williams, University of South Florida
This book contains useful information and offers helpful resources for those who would like further information. The chapters contain useful graphics and examples, and provide the reader with a solid background on words, word origins and the development of our vocabulary knowledge. The book also includes step-by-step strategies for sharing this knowledge with students.
Margot Kinberg, National University
Each strategy is described in detail, weaving research with examples from classrooms. I believe teachers can easily find new ideas for teaching content vocabulary, and understand when each strategy is most effective. I am especially impressed with the examples.
Cathy Blanchfield, California State University Fresno
The text is well organized, theoretically sound, and the strategies are practical and effective. Excellent strategies for addressing the word-specific challenges for English learners. Excellent ideas and activities.
Jackie Glasgow, Ohio University
