The Bridge of Vocabulary, a book and CD set available November 13, offers an explicit vocabulary intervention program developed for general and special educators.
The program presents a systematic intensive approach to help foster vocabulary and language growth. Developed for multiple users, including speech-language pathologists (SLPs), classroom teachers, reading teachers, and other education professionals, The Bridge of Vocabulary targets five age levels, from preschool through adult.
Early learners use pictures to help them grasp early vocabulary concepts, elementary students use both oral and written activities, and older learners use reasoning skills to master abstract vocabulary concepts.
The program book provides more than 100 activities field-tested by classroom teachers and speech language pathologists. The accompanying CD-ROM offers additional guided practice activities, independent practice, word cards, and picture cards.
Pre-publication pricing through November 1 is $39.99 for the book and CD (a 20 percent discount). After November 1, the price returns to $49.99.
