This book is written for preservice and inservice teachers of all grade levels and in all content areas who recognize the importance of vocabulary development but aren't sure what to do about it in the classroom. Literacy experts Camille Blachowicz and Peter Fisher wrote this book for teachers who have a sense of direction but who want some new, classroom-tested strategies to renew their curriculum. This new edition includes a wealth of new material. It expands its treatment of independent, metacognitive strategies for learning vocabulary, such as using contextual cues and references.
