Whole Brain Teaching Strategy
For students who have learned to read, wide reading of different types of texts, including trade books, along with direct teacher instruction and rich vocabulary experiences can help them continue to build word schema (Anderson 1990; Nagy and Herman 1987).
For younger students, most vocabulary learning through reading has to be facilitated by adults and older peers because books for early readers intentionally contain simple words that children already know. Engaging students in various types of vocabulary activities by reading aloud texts with more sophisticated words that they will encounter in future texts will help them build their experiences with words and increase their word schemas (Beck and McKeown 2001; Biemiller and Boote 2006)
