Product Description
With Word Play you'll help students know what words mean, convey their meaning, and uses them appropriately. Three aspects of learning work together for successful vocabulary instruction, and Sandra Whitaker shares fun but powerful ways to teach them: Morphemic structure - where words come from, how they form, and how to form new words from them; Conceptual meaning makers - context-specific terms that support meaning making within assigned texts but are rare outside those texts; Academic vocabulary - cross-discipline and discipline-specific words that are the language of school.
