SUMMARY

For the Love of Words Many elementary students today have a reading and speaking vocabulary far below what is expected and necessary for their grade level. For the Love of Words offers teachers a practical and systematic instructional framework for helping students overcome "the vocabulary gap" so they can succeed academically, especially in reading comprehension. Unlike conventional "skill and drill" instruction, this approach helps students understand why a strong vocabulary is socritical for their success in reading and writing and develop strategies for learning new words based on the best ofcurrent research. "As a researcher and educator primarily concerned with improving children's reading comprehension,I implore you to read this book on vocabulary. Your time will be well spent." -from the Foreword by Nell K. Duke "Elementary school teachers will find a wealth of ideas that can expand their students' reading, writing, and thinking vocabulary." -Laura Robb, director, language arts and curriculum coordinator, Powhatan School, Boyce, Virginia "This lively and useful book addresses the need of elementary and middle school teachers to make vocabulary instruction sensible and contextualized in unique and powerful ways. The section on 'incidental learning' is worth the cover price for any teacher at any level." -Jeffrey Wilhelm, professor, Boise State University "For all those who love words and who love to teach children words, this is an eminently practical book. It more than delivers what it promises." -Kathleen Roskos, professor, John Carroll University, Cleveland, Ohio "For the Love of Words is a practical tool for elementary teachers as they plan for systematic and intentionalvocabulary instruction." -Jo Ann Christofferson, literacy consultant and literacy coach,Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency, Bettendorf, IowaBodrova, Elena is the author of 'For The Love Of Words Vocabulary Instruction That Works, Grades K-6', published 2005 under ISBN 9780787977849 and ISBN 0787977845.
