Why Use a Content-Based System?
Current research suggests that a content-based approach to vocabulary and spelling offers greater promise for student kearning than conventional practices. Consider these findings:
Multiple exposures to vocabulary items are important.
Vocabulary words should be those that the learner will find useful in many contexts.
Explicit instruction of words and their meanings increases the likelihood that young children will understand and remember the meanings of new words.
Vocabulary impacts reading comprehension.
Current teaching practices ignore the direct teaching of vocabulary.
Learning vocabulary from context is not effective for poor readers.
Poor readers are not exposed to challenging language.
Repetition improves vocabulary acquisition.
