Dynamic Literacy Publishes New WordBuild® Teacher Editions
4th Generation Teacher Manuals Incorporate Feedback, New Methods

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. (April 20, 2009) – Dynamic Literacy, a developer of vocabulary instructional materials, announces new revisions to WordBuild® A Better Way to Teach Vocabulary™. Studies show that students who understand how words are formed, by combining prefixes, suffixes and roots, tend to have larger vocabularies and better reading comprehension, according to the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The new Dynamic Literacy Teacher Editions are designed to boost classroom performance by providing teachers with detailed guidelines to help students gain skills in vocabulary, language, and reading comprehension.

“Although many teachers inherently know that morphological word building is an effective way to expand vocabulary and comprehension skills, few have been trained in word building methodology,” according to Dr. David Larrick, Director of Instructional Content for Dynamic Literacy. “These new teacher editions provide a solid day-by-day framework for vocabulary development that is interesting and fun for both students and teachers.”

WordBuild, A Better Way to Teach Vocabulary consists of two series, Foundations and Elements Intended for grades 3-5, but available for vocabulary instruction intervention for grades 6 and up, Foundations contains two years of morphics-based instruction. Elements is intended for grades 5-9, but is available for vocabulary instruction intervention for grades 10 and up, and contains three years of morphics-based instruction. Prices start at $10.99 per student, plus $69.99 per teacher for instructional materials.
