Vocabulary--Study and teaching; Word recognition; Ginn 360 reading program; Reading (Elementary)


The writer of this paper has taught from the Ginn 360 Reading Series for the past five years'. In using Level 11, The Sun That Warms, the writer found the vocabulary to be much more advanced than that of the previous levels. It was also found that the students experienced difficulty in retaining meanings of the words. Upon closer examination of the vocabulary, it was discovered that approximately one-third of the stories present from fifteen to twenty-eight words which have been judged to represent problems of concept for the pupils. The purpose of this study was to compile a list of independent and group activities for vocabulary development that would supplement those given in the basal reader.
