How to Develop Students’ Vocabulary?

One of the many challenges of teaching students is how to develop and raise their level of vocabulary.  How can we get them to use these Reading Vocabulary words, for instance, in their creative writing or even oral vocabulary?

Dr. P. Johnson, from Minnesota State University, has develop a 7 step plan to help in this very important goal of raising vocabulary levels.  I think it’ll also be useful in working with ESOL students.


Sometimes we teachers have to be reminded of even the basics of Language Arts instruction in both elementary and higher grades.
