From acclaimed educators and best-selling authors Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey comes Teaching Reading: Mastering the Fundamentals, a series of four laminated guides that provide teachers with essential information and strategies for teaching students in grades K-6 how to read.  The guides, which are designed to be used sequentially as a set but can also be stand-alone resources for targeting certain components of teaching reading, draw from the latest research and present practical, powerful strategies that teachers can utilize right away in their classrooms. 
This guide, #3 in the series, is about the development of vocabulary and morphological awareness for elementary readers. These skills are crucial for reading comprehension of increasingly complex texts. Each skill is discussed separately, along with ideas for leveraging them together.
Readers will find guidance on 
  • teaching affixes
  • providing instruction in morphology
  • using morphological word games
  • teaching Latin and Greek roots
  • vocabulary types and tiers
  • components of an effective vocabulary program that builds comprehension
  • using independent reading to build vocabulary knowledge
  • providing intentional instruction of targeted vocabulary
  • teaching students how to use world-solving strategies
  • using word consciousness and word play activities
  • mistakes to avoid when teaching vocabulary
