"This book provides a comprehensive framework for teaching vocabulary to all students in all content areas. Respected literacy researchers and educators Camille Blachowicz and Peter J. Fisher have written a book for pre-service and in-service teachers who recognize the importance of vocabulary development and are seeking new, classroom-tested strategies to build or renew their curriculum. The new fourth edition of Teaching Vocabulary in All Classrooms includes new and updated material throughout the text as well as expanded coverage of independent metacognitive strategies for learning vocabulary using contextual cues and references. In addition, this revised edition adds ideas for dealing with student diversity, with an increased focus on struggling readers, English language learners, and older students." --Résumé de l'éditeur.
