Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate how to build academic vocabulary across the science content area. With the use of the children’s literature based program, World of Words by Dr. Susan B. Neuman, the study seeks to gain a better understanding and evaluate best practice in explicit vocabulary instruction. The program focuses on teaching science vocabulary through explicit direct instruction of terms and using literature as an application support. Students’ growth was evaluated by a pre and post assessment after the instructed unit.
