Multiple Word Meanings
James Lattyak and Suzanne Dedrick
Multiple Word Meanings is for use by students in elementary grades and above who have limited understanding of words that have more than one meaning. This book is a revision of two popular series, Many Meanings and Multiple Meanings. Now combined into one comprehensive program, it is designed for ease of use while retaining the salient aspects of the original materials. Its restructuring provides a seamless transition from less complex language structures to the difficult challenges of language development, especially semantics and syntax. The language structures closely parallel those used in Reading Milestones. Objectives and standards are provided for teachers to individualize their evaluations for each student's needs. In this way, Multiple Word Meanings allows for a great deal of flexibility in both the delivery of instruction and its viability.
