Summary

Before college students can learn new vocabulary words, they must understand how they learn. This new basic vocabulary text addresses the need for identifying learning styles by exposing students to the VARK Learning Inventory-encouraging every type of learner to use the skills they already have to learn and use hundreds of new words. BASIC COLLEGE VOCABULARY STRATEGIES also approaches vocabulary development with a unique and proven systematic strategy called SSCD: (1) See and Say the word; (2) use Structural analysis; (3) apply Context clues; and (4) incorporate Dictionary knowledge.

Excerpts

PURPOSE For college students or any learner, strong vocabulary knowledge and word acquisition skills are necessary for reading success. Given the amount of information students need to acquire, they need to be efficient in their approach to new material; therefore, this book has a dual purpose. The primary purpose is to present words that are important for reading success. It is our goal to give students information and word attack skills that will enable them to figure out future words without interrupting their reading and comprehension ability. The second purpose is to help students be more efficient in their vocabulary learning. Therefore, besides vocabulary instruction, we have included information on learning styles and memory development. It is our hope that students will transfer the strategies presented in this text to all of their learning situations. SPECIAL FEATURES This text has several features that make it unique among vocabulary textbooks. The first is the inclusion of the VARK Learning Inventory. Through this inventory, students will better understand how they learn. As a result, they will be able to adapt their learning style to a variety of situations that will help them become successful. The inventory is reproduced in the first chapter. (A website with self-scoring is provided as well.) Chapter review exercises are specifically designed to accommodate individual learning styles. Second, the book provides students with information about memory improvement techniques. Memory tips are based on John Langons's "Seven Steps to a Powerful Memory" fromReading and Study Skills.The seven memory tips are introduced in chapters one and two and are further explained in the subsequent chapters. Again, these tips will help students effectively learn the new vocabulary and will give them information they can transfer to other academic and nonacademic learning situations. Each chapter also includes a Learning Strategy. These strategies are specifically designed for vocabulary, but students are encouraged to incorporate these strategies in other learning situations. The vocabulary words are presented in the format that effective readers use to determine the meaning of unknown words--SSCD: See and Say, Structure, Context Clues, Dictionary. In a reading situation, the primary goal is to keep reading and not lose comprehension. The words are first presented with their pronunciation to give students the necessary information so that they cansaythe word. Students may be able to identify the word using the pronunciation key, or they may go to step two, understanding wordstructure.Throughout the text, students will develop an extensive knowledge of word parts that will help them in future reading situations. Next, the words are presented incontextso that students can determine the word meaning in an authentic reading situation. Context clues are clearly indicated, and information about this strategy is presented in the text. Finally, adictionarydefinition is given with another sentence to help the reader understand how the word would actually be used. The dictionary definitions are from theAmerican Heritage Dictionary, www.bartleby.com/am . CHAPTER ORGANIZATION Chapters open with a Memory Tip and a Learning Strategy, and there are two sections in each chapter. Within a typical section you will find the following: A list of words to learn 2. A list of structural elements A pronunciation guide for the highlighted words The definitions of structural elements Words presented in context Dictionary definitions and another example sentence Practice exercises a. Fill in the Blank b. Correct or Incorrect? c. Short Answer d. Multiple Choice Power Words are included at the end of each chapter. These are interesting
