Direct vocabulary instruction aids reading comprehension. Students learn vocabulary directly when they are taught both individual words and word-learning strategies.
Verbocity is the quickest, easiest, most reliable way to improve reading comprehension! It is the only program that uses classical literature to help children grades 2 to 10 build a complete, robust vocabulary.
Phonics programs teach students how to decode printed material. They don’t provide students with the meaning of those words. After phonics, students need to develop and improve their vocabulary and reading comprehension.
