Focusing on vocabulary, this book for administrators, literacy coaches, reading specialists, and classroom teachers reviews recent research on vocabulary instruction, outlines instructional and assessment strategies and classroom activities, and looks at special issues for English language learners. A chapter on resources lists web sites, books and articles, children's books for word play, and children's dictionaries. Discussion questions and activities for professional development are included. Appendices offer reproducible game worksheets. There is no subject index. The book is one of five professional development books, each addressing one major component of literacy instruction identified by the National Reading Panel (2002). Newton teaches literacy education and directs the Center for Literacy at the University of Akron.
