Summary

Words Their Way: Vocabulary Their Way with American History shows middle and secondary level American history teachers how to engage in history in order to ignite student debates over topics or issues; read, write and think like historians to help students organize the domain-specific vocabulary words into ways that make sense; use general academic vocabulary and language to help students explore and learn about the past; and tap into the powerful roots of English to become equipped with the tools to help students become independent word learners for the rest of their lives. After setting the stage for teaching vocabulary in history, 12 independent American history units cover the four stages in domain-specific vocabulary instruction and related core activities and strategies, including building background knowledge, thinking like a historian, connecting vocabulary in context, and assessing vocabulary knowledge. The units parallel eras in American history and the related chapters generally found in American history textbooks. They provide flexibility for use as the teacher sees fit, with an eye to students’ needs and instructional objectives. Three helpful appendices include a look at the big picture graphic organizers customized for teach of the 12 units, three generative vocabulary assessments, and history teachers’ favorite go-to generic graphic organizers and ready-to-use blank templates.
