''Educators genuinely concerned with making smart choices about which words to teach and how to teach them will be richly rewarded if they read and take seriously what's in this book. More important, so will their students. Michael Graves shows once again why he is one of our leading lights in vocabulary instruction.''

-- Claude Goldenberg, Stanford University, School of Education

''This comprehensive and practical resource dives into the heart of word learning and demonstrates how to maximize the benefits of teaching individual words. Dr. Graves skillfully highlights concrete examples of vocabulary instruction as rich and powerful tools that can be easily incorporated into a variety of educational settings. I highly recommend it.''

-- Kari D. Ross, Curriculum Facilitator and Literacy Specialist, Centennial Schools, Minnesota

''Teaching Individual Words is a must-have book for any educator's book shelf. In addition to clear models for instruction, it makes the often neglected point that teachers must also use sophisticated language themselves in order to encourage youngsters to do the same. Dr. Graves' readable style and practical knowledge make this book easy-to-use and sure to have an impact.''

-- Linda Diamond, CEO, Consortium on Reading Excellence
