Description - Vocabulary Handbook by Linda Diamond

For educators at every level, the "Vocabulary Handbook" is a comprehensive reference about vocabulary instruction. Organized according to the elements of explicit instruction (what? why? when? and how?), the handbook includes both a research-informed knowledge base and practical sample lesson models. It tackles the three critical components of high quality vocabulary instruction: teaching specific words, teaching independent work-learning strategies, and promoting word consciousness. It is designed very thoughtfully to be most useful to educators.
