This special bundle brings you practical application for vocabulary and the essentials for planning vocabulary and writing lessons. Write, Right, Rite! outlines a practical, accessible format you can use to succeed at having your students revise and edit their work. Teachers who have implemented this approach have found that the focus of revision and editing shifts from a teacher-driven approach to a student-centered approach. Assessments throughout the book place students and teachers in the role of self-assessing their work through reflection strategies, which involve parents as part of the process. Vocabulary Plus K-8 gives good advice about teaching vocabulary and provides ways to teach specific words by presenting sound theory combined with workable teaching materials. Grounded on the Nilsens' source-based approach, students and teachers are led through explorations of how, over the centuries, words have been enlarged and given additional meanings both through lexical extensions and metaphorical processes. Capitalizing on the basic concept of a source-based approach that words have natural connections to each other, the Nilsens provide ample applications to demonstrate how these words can be taught through what are variously called gestalts, webs, or ladders.
