9781436358118: Vocabulary Skills: Grasping Structure and Function

Research indicates that recognition of word elements contributes immensely to reading comprehension, as proficient readers develop abilities to quickly analyze and synthesize unfamiliar words, discern possible meanings, and take note of how words are used within context of sentences. With the thoughtfully devised lessons in this book, students will develop abilities they need to master structural analysis using prefixes, homonyms, synonyms, antonyms, inflectional endings, signs, symbols, abbreviations, contractions, initialisms, acronyms, and other affixes. In order to help and encourage students in grasping the structure and function of words, author Patricia Lawrence has designed a comprehensive and practical handbook on Vocabulary Skills.

Author Patricia Lawrence believes that students are more energized when they are asked to explore and participate in exercises and activities. So, instead of just presenting word lists and lessons in this book, Lawrence involves the students by giving them challenges in between discussions. This provides students with varieties of terms within rich varied texts rather than simply having them learn lists of words. The resources the author has utilized enable students to think of a host of ideas and situations and ultimately learn more. This encourages the employment of a range of self-developed strategies based on acquired word analysis skills students encounter during the reading of this book.

Ultimately, Lawrence's manner of fostering word knowledge, recognition, and usage, will develop and enhance reading comprehension skills. The specially designed activities in the book provide opportunities to practice and improve word mastery, sentence construction, knowledge acquisition, and self-confidence. With this book, students will boost their Vocabulary Skills.
