Chapter Summary

Learning new vocabulary is one of the most important tasks that our AFL/ASL learners need to accomplish in order to be able to communicate successfully using the language. This chapter discusses the ways in which teachers might use printed media as a valuable source of different text types, in order to introduce and practice using new vocabulary. It outlines a number of activities for four step frame work. This list is by no means exhaustive, and teachers may wish to use the framework outlines earlier to develop more activities on the basis of texts that fulfill the needs of their students. Using vocabulary in meaningful contexts could help both retention and more successful use. There are many forms of production that range along a continuum from controlled to open-ended production. Examples of each type of activity are introduced in the chapter.
