This book would be very useful for both university reading courses and classroom teachers. I use Words Their Way® both in my first grade classroom and with college students as a way to implement word study.
Kristi McNeal, CSU Fresno
Words Their Way’s® developmentally-driven, hands-on instructional approach has been a phenomenon in word study, providing a practical way to study words with students. The keys to this research-based approach are to know your students’ literacy progress, organize for instruction, and implement word study. This streamlined book and the DVD and CD-ROM that accompany it gives you all the tools you need to carry out word study instruction that will motivate and engage your students, and help them to succeed in literacy learning. Ordered in a developmental format, Words Their Way® complements the use of any existing phonics, spelling, and vocabulary curricula.
Knowing Your Students
Organizing for Instruction
Implementing Word Study
The theory behind and practice for word sorts allows even the novice teacher to understand how to use the assessments to organize instruction. The organization of the last five chapters creates a useful resource for teachers. Each begins with a research-based description and moves into sound instructional practices, giving the teacher a complete understanding of how to meet the needs of students.
