The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the concept sort strategy on vocabulary acquisition. Participants were seven third graders who were chosen by the researcher based on attendance from one elementary school. The elementary school is located in a mid-sized city in Wisconsin. The students received an additional ninety minutes of vocabulary instruction in addition to the language arts block. The results showed the effectiveness of the concept sort strategy with an increase in the participants vocabularies. The process for research provided implications for future research which are discussed.
