Multisensory Strategy Instruction for Vocabulary Acquisition and Maintenance
Educators employ a variety of teaching techniques to assist their students with learning and retaining new material. The intervention described in this paper was designed specifically for a seventh-grade English/Language Arts class. The use of multisensory instruction to teach vocabulary words yielded significant positive results. These findings support the use of this type of instruction for teaching vocabulary words. However, additional research is recommended. Recommendations for future research that would provide greater clarification regarding the efficacy of this teaching method are provided here.
