Annotation: In this practical text, Cathy Collins Block and John Mangieri synthesize research about vocabulary acquisition. They outline five “word-learning beliefs” that we must consider in order to support students’ vocabulary acquisition:
Belief 1: All words are not of equal importance.

Belief 2: Students retain words they truly understand and can use when they speak, listen, read, and write.

Belief 3: Students increase their vocabulary more rapidly when they learn how to use one word-meaning clue with one vocabulary-building strategy each week.

Belief 4: When students understand words frequently used in texts, they develop a positive attitude toward reading.

Belief 5: Expert readers know a large number of important words that encompass all parts of speech.

They present specific suggestions for building the academic vocabulary that are so important for English Language Learners.
