Synopsis

The Word Wall Teaching Vocabulary Through Immersion by Joseph Green

This practical handbook explains the concept of mural dictionaries - word lists on walls - which, through the process of vocabulary development and enrichment, become learning tools that are easily integrated into any classroom management system. To help you take the initial step Joe Green supplies eight word lists, and these become the blueprints for succeeding lists and applications developed by you to suit the specific needs of your own classroom. The Word Wall approach to vocabulary development embraces a strong competitive element in the form of a game - a game which the author devised and used for twenty-five years with students from a wide range of backgrounds: from urban, suburban and rural areas, from inner cities and affluent neighbourhoods, among native English speakers and those for whom English was a new language. The Word Wall approach has successfully challenged and motivated the most reluctant of learners by giving them the keys to eventual success: the command of language, the resources of an enhanced vocabulary, and the confidence to strengthen their reading, speaking and writing skills.

About the Author

With nearly three decades of public school experience, Joe Green has taught at every grade level from early primary to secondary, including an assignment as a prison teacher at San Quentin. He has worked as a classroom teacher, compensatory reading teacher, lead teacher and administrator, and is currently serving as a computer technology integration specialist with San Francisco Unified School District and is a lead teacher in the Fast For Word brain-based computer assisted reading program. Wherever Joe has taught he has always held reading instruction to be the primary objective of all his efforts, and wherever he has gone The Word Wall has followed him.
