Review:

"Joanne Billingsley has done an amazing job with this book. Finding the time to think of and create fun and interactive games and activities is almost impossible for a classroom teacher. This book presents strategies and ideas in an easy-to-use format, including ways to support and encourage ELL students. Each activity is described in great detail with step-by-step instructions on how to facilitate learning for ALL students." --Sara Cope, Principal and Former Teacher, BonDeCroft Elementary, Sparta, TN

"I love the thorough research base made comprehensible for everyday teachers. The instructional practices that are espoused are effective practices that will actually work in the classroom and mirror much of what I have already implemented in my classes. Many teachers struggle with effective vocabulary instruction, and this book can help them improve." --Janna McClain, Former ELL Teacher, Hobgood Elementary School, Murfreesboro, TN

"I have seen Joanne Billingsley in action teaching and modeling the varied vocabulary strategies outlined in this book, and I’ve observed our Harlandale ISD teachers and students using and enjoying the strategies! Our teachers’ practices were enhanced with easy-to-implement, interactive, and engaging strategies which resulted in improved academic vocabulary acquisition for our students. Her years of research and first-hand work with students and classroom teachers have now come alive in a masterful book, providing both the research/rationale and practical application of the Vocabulary Magic® six-step process, read/talk/write activities, and so much more."  --Carol Berg Harle, Ph.D., Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Harlandale Independent School District, TX
