Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction


MANHATTAN BOUND 2 TRAIN
Sue, an English woman here on contract to perform "Quality Reviews" on New York public schools

was reading Bringing Words to Life: Robust Vocabulary Instruction by Isabel L. Beck, Margaret G. McKeon, and Linda Kucan

A school on which Sue had conducted a "Quality Review"--part of the process where the NYC Department of Education evaluates and grades public schools A-F--recommended that she read the book and bring it back to England with her. She thinks the book has a good concept, to extend the vocabulary range of students. She did not elaborate and seemed ready to return to her book.
