Tools for Teaching Academic Vocabulary by Janet Allen

This book is perhaps the best I have ever read on vocabulary.  It deals specifically with academic vocabulary - a topic near and ear to CCSS.  However, unlike so many of the vocabulary texts we have, this text teaches to understanding the word - really learning it - not just memorizing itl.

Like many of Janet's books, this book is teacher friendly - including templates that are easily understood, powerful learning tools, and reproduced in the text.

This is a must read.  Thank you, Janet.
