About this item

The authors of this guide for teachers of grades K-12 include scholars in education, educational testing, vocabulary assessment, and second-language acquisition. They present innovative vocabulary assessments designed to help teachers make instructional decisions in the classroom, and they offer guidelines on choosing which words to teach. The assessments draw on educational psychology and psycholinguistics, combining methods from educational measurement, linguistics, and computational linguistics. The book’s final chapter offers annotated lists of online and print resources in many categories: lesson plans, word games and puzzles, general resources for vocabulary instruction, language blogs, specialized word references, books for the classroom at various grade levels, and novels for young people that will help build vocabulary. This chapter also lists resources authored by contributors, including databases and web sites as well as journal papers. The book contains sample test questions, classroom examples, and a glossary.
