"Edward Fry has the uncanny as well as canny (choose your word) ability to take a complex concept?in this case vocabulary?and present it in a form useful to students and teachers." Allen Berger, Heckert Professor of Reading and Writing, Miami University "The Vocabulary Teacher?s Book of Lists will serve as an invaluable reference tool to any instructor involved in teaching English or designing project work. The content spans the grades from 4th up to college and is characteristic of Edward Fry?s contribution to be both comprehensive and creative." Pat Costigan, learning consultant, Bordentown Regional School District, New Jersey "Teachers who want to mix test-prep with life-success-prep will welcome The Vocabulary Teacher?s Book of Lists as an easy-to-use resource for lively lessons. They?ll enjoy the wry humor of Dr. Edward Fry?s teaching suggestions as he marries word work to wordplay." Lee Mountain, professor, curriculum and instruction, College of Education, University of Houston The Vocabulary Teacher?s Book of Lists offers content for literally hundreds of vocabulary improvement lessons for elementary and secondary teachers, self-improving adults, home schoolers, and students studying for their SATs. While there are dozens of shorter high interest lists of words, the core of the book is based on Latin and Greek roots and prefixes. But the largest list is Homophones. In fact it is one of the largest lists of homophones you will ever use. This list, like many others, is appropriate for spelling lessons or writer?s reference as well as vocabulary improvement. There are two dozen teaching methods in the Methods chapter and teaching suggestions to help improve reading and writing are scattered throughout the book. The lessons can be as short as a word-a-day or as long as a school year. The range of difficulty can go from upper elementary to college freshman classes, and be as diverse as adult education to English language learners.

"Just as word learning is incremental, so is learning about vocabulary instruction. Teachers need exposure to research, best-practice strategies, and fellow practitioners." -Charlene Cobb and Camille Blachowicz The way we've learned influences the way we teach, but the vocabulary instruction many of us received-looking up words and writing sentences or completing worksheets- just doesn't work. So what can we do instead? No More "Look Up the List" Vocabulary Instruction is your guide to engaging, research-proven practices for teaching words effectively. Practitioner Charlene Cobb and researcher Camille Blachowicz share why old-fashioned methods don't work, what the research shows does work, and how to put the research into action. Charlene and Camille answer teachers' most commonly asked questions about vocabulary instruction, including: How many words, and how do I select them? How can I foster student independence using dictionaries and glossaries? How do I find time for meaningful vocabulary instruction? How can I assess and hold students accountable? "Without practice in the full range of ways we use a word," write Charlene and Camille, "our word knowledge is limited and falls from our grasp as the next cycle of words enters." No More "Look Up the List" Vocabulary Instruction offers a solution-deepen students' engagement with words, increase their exposure to them, and expand their word knowledge.
