These stage-specific companion volumes to Words Their Way®: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction provide a complete curriculum of reproducible sorts and detailed directions for the teacher working with students in each stage of spelling development, from emergent through derivational relations. This companion volume, the last in the series, provides word study for advanced readers and writers in the derivational relations stage of spelling development (Grades 5 — 12).

Additionally, students explore word origins and word spelling-meaning relationships.

Literacy is a concern of all nations of the world, whether they be classified as developed or undeveloped. A person must be able to read and write in order to function adequately in society, and reading and writing require a script. But what kinds of scripts are in use today, and how do they influence the acquisition, use and spread of literacy? Scripts and Literacy is the first book to systematically explore how the nature of a script affects how it is read and how one learns to read and write it. It reveals the similarities underlying the world's scripts and the features that distinguish how they are read. Scholars from different parts of the world describe several different scripts, e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian Amerindian -- and how they are learned. Research data and theories are presented. This book should be of primary interest to educators and researchers in reading and writing around the world.
Opening with a comprehensive tutorial on study skills, this text then guides the student through each of the eight content areas: language arts and reading, mathematics, social studies, science, art, music, health and physical education, and theatre arts.

This concise guide also helps students understand many of the basic theories and methodologies behind best practices for each content area. The book concludes with preparatory information on ESL supplemental certification.

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. This practical guide gives mathematics teachers vocabulary-rich activities and strategies that target the important content objectives they already teach, and reflect the expectations of their state or the Common Core standards. The book’s 12 hands-on teaching units address three areas of study covered in a typical mathematics class or textbook–geometry, measurement, and numbers and operations–and cover such topics as lines, angles, and polygons; properties of quadrilaterals; measurement area, perimeter, and volume and fractions. Each unit provides specific directions, language, reproducible materials, supporting activities, and assessments to help teachers effectively and efficiently target the different types of vocabulary needed for academic success–domain-specific and general academic vocabulary and language–all centered on the content that teachers already teach. Aimed at fourth and fifth grade teachers, but also useful to others who teach units on geometry, measurement, or fractions, Words Their Way: Vocabulary for Elementary Mathematics does not seek to replace the classroom mathematics text, but instead serves to explicitly support the learning of academic vocabulary so that students will do better when they work in their basal or other materials.
