“The second edition highlights Ganske's ‘next-generation’ word study, which strategically integrates academic vocabulary instruction with word study. Ganske provides classroom teachers and specialists with authentic tools and resources for developing students’ knowledge using cognitive engagement, academic conversations, and explicit instruction. Lesson scenarios with accompanying classroom snapshots weave theory into practice, covering the ‘what’, ‘why’, and ‘how’ of effective teaching. Our district is just beginning a deep study of academic language, and I know this book will capably guide us.”

—Bev Taylor, MSE, K–5 reading specialist, Wasco Elementary School, St. Charles, Illinois


“This book continues to be an indispensable professional resource for every elementary teacher and English language instructor. Whether you are a novice or seasoned educator, Ganske provides comprehensive instruction for helping students to discern orthography and vocabulary in greater depth. The SAIL framework, coupled with classroom transcripts, shows how teachers can foster discussion that leads to increased understanding of academic vocabulary and everyday words. The perspectives of several teachers sharing their keen insights and reflections are valuable, as are the book's assessments, suggested games, and sample lessons.”

—Connie Largent, MS, Principal, Stonegate Elementary School, Zionsville, Indiana


“Ganske’s second edition is rich with useful materials to help teachers meet the individual word study needs of their students. Teacher perspectives and examples of teacher–student conversations offer excellent models of high quality instruction. Time-saving word and picture cards are just right for sorting while engaging students in deep learning about words. The new chapter on English Learners and the supplemental online resources are welcome additions, presenting readers with both theoretical and practical insights into helping children learn to read, write, and spell in English.”

—Patricia L. Scharer, PhD, Department of Teaching and Learning, The Ohio State University
