Review:


Educators seeking pointers regarding how best to teach a particular layer of word knowledge will find snapshot tips in each chapter. For meaning, encourage students to ask questions about new words. For word parts, be selective about prefixes and suffixes taught; choose only the most common (included in the book). Particularly helpful for teachers are the numerous classroom exercises at the end of each chapter. These are not your standard fill-in-the-blank tasks, but rather are useful, interactive, fun and even thought-provoking exercises that students and teachers will enjoy, involving lots of pair work and discussion.
...Teachers will find themselves referring to this book again and again for information, classroom activities and insights.

- Deborah Silver, Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, IL (Fall 2010)
