"This book addresses not only the need for vocabulary development, but also tools to use in the classroom. I liked how easy the tools and strategies were to work into everyday classroom activities and across the curriculum. Very practical." -- Stephanie Malin, Elementary Instructional Coach
"Goes to the next level by focusing on increasing the number of vocabulary words taught and teaching the students so that they can become more independent vocabulary learners-the end goal of all learning. You can develop a complete, holistic vocabulary program for your school." -- Karen Landress, Speech/Language Pathologist
"Very important for everyone working with students on developing literacy and improving their overall education. Vocabulary instruction is a critical topic, and there is a great need for a well-developed program that can be readily implemented. This is one of the most thorough books on the topic." -- Mary Amato, Literacy Coach
"If you want a well-researched, complete, easy-to-use resource filled with effective strategies for teaching vocabulary, look no further. Lubliner and Scott have done an excellent job of marshalling the best ideas on vocabulary development and teaching. This book will definitely be on my bookshelf." -- Dana L. Grisham, Interim Associate Dean
"Lubliner and Scott have researched and written a treatise that shows teachers, especially those working with mandated programs, how to integrate social studies and science instruction into their curriculum. Word study becomes the catalyst for increased student learning in all content areas." -- Vivian Boyd, Director of Curriculum and Instruction

"As a bilingual literacy coach working primarily with English learners, it is so helpful to have a resource that addresses a critical component of language development with practical strategies." -- Kathy Flores, Literacy Coach

"With district and state mandates and teachers restricted by daily schedules, it is refreshing to find simple strategies that we can implement in our limited time." -- Lynne Cheney, Fifth-Grade Teacher
