  • 6. Why teach vocabulary?
    Vocabulary knowledge accounts for over 80% of the variance in reading comprehension.
    In the 4th grade, 70% of the problem in reading comprehension is vocabulary.
    Vocabulary is causally related to reading comprehension.
    “Indeed, one of the most enduring findings in reading research is the extent to which students’ vocabulary knowledge relates to their reading comprehension.” (Osborn & Hiebert, 2004)

  • 11. A plan to build a series of escalators on the mountainside next to Tai Shue Wan was approved yesterday. The new escalators will provide a second entrance to Ocean Park. They will offer an alternative way of reaching the three main attractions on the headland. Ocean Park manager Kitty Chan said she was absolutely delighted with the news. She hopes that it will help arrest the decline in visitor numbers seen over the past two years.

  • 30. Theory of STM and LTM
    To move words from STM to LTM, S need to mentally process them by making decision, making personal association and multisensory experiences.
    Short-Term Memory (STM) receives patterns of images and sounds
    Long-Term Memory (LTM) is boosted by using a schema (structure for organizing information or concepts) combined with scripts (which stores a common behavioral sequence).
