Now in a fully updated second edition, this comprehensive and practical book outlines the theoretical underpinnings for vocabulary and acts as a ‘how to’ guide to developing word learning across the school and curriculum. It is packed with easy-to-implement activities, worksheets and resources that can be put into practice immediately with individual students or groups, whole classes and throughout the school.

The Word Aware approach provides a structured framework to promote vocabulary development in all children and has been rigorously tried and tested. Now in full colour, with photocopiable and downloadable materials, it is an outstanding resource that will be an essential addition to any school and classroom.

The second edition of Word Aware 1 brings:

  • An even wider range of ready-to-go vocabulary activities
  • Fine-tuned teaching techniques
  • Enhanced resources to develop children’s independent word learning skills
  • A step-by-step guide to developing a whole school approach

Word Aware 1 is an invaluable tool for teachers and other professionals looking to support children as they broaden their vocabulary. It is particularly suited to children aged 5–11 years but can easily be adapted for older children. It is of particular value for children with special education needs and for those learning English as an additional language.

Word Aware has been developed by combining up to data research with extensive experience in the classroom. Stephen Parsons and Anna Branagan have been using this approach and training practitioners since 2010. The end product is an effective and time efficient method for developing the spoken and written vocabulary of all children. It has been enthusiastically received by class teachers, head teachers, curriculum co-ordinators, special needs co-ordinators, learning support assistants and speech and language therapists.
