This has some very good ideas for teaching vocabulary which is a huge weakness of mine Not all of the ideas were things I could use but I don't expect that when reading a book like this The biggest reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was that I wanted the templates in a format I could use She included an appendix that had copies of the templates and a CD with copies of the templates However with the CD all of the templates were PDFs so they are no useful than the hard copies in the appendix I needed something I could edit in order for it to be really useful Great resource This book offers helpful pre during and after reading strategies that help students think critically about what they are reading and take ownership of their learning through writing to learn strategies The strategies are arranged in alphabetical order making it easy to jump around and explore what really interests you The appendix is filled with templates in both English and Spanish for every strategy I appreciated the author's consistent pattern for each chapter of explaining the what how when and why of each strategy This gives instructional clarity and purpose to teachers who and myself included tend to pick activities and strategies at random in the rush to put together a lesson for whomever I highly recommend this book Useful compendium of activities to teach vocabulary I appreciate that it includes a CD with printable handouts and Spanish language versions of the hand outsThe activities are interesting and I will definitely use them but I was underwhelmed by the book even though it is practical and useful Wonderful practical book for learning new ways to introduce academic vocabulary to your students A great companion to Words Words Words this is a book of specific strategies to engage both teacher and students in active vocabulary retention Some great vocabulary suggestions A book of reading and writing strategies Includes templates for graphic organizers Great strategies for teaching vocabulary in multiple content areas Strategies are easy to adapt for your classroom A resource including a variety of activities to aid students in connecting with vocabulary terms The book comes with master copies in both English and Spanish
