Preservice teachers in this study (N = 121) received training in evidence-based practices for vocabulary instruction via a series of three training modules. They then completed one of two practice conditions—creating a multimedia product to teach a vocabulary word or completing a non-multimedia learning task during class. The two practice conditions resulted in similar gains on the knowledge measure, but the group that created the multimedia product significantly outperformed the group that completed the non-multimedia task in a demonstration of instruction. Implications for teacher education are discussed by the authors.

A Synthesis of Reading Interventions and Effects on Reading Comprehension Outcomes for Older Struggling Readers
The paper reports a synthesis of intervention studies conducted between 1994 and 2004 with older students (Grades 6-12) with reading difficulties. The authors extended the synthesis to include all struggling readers, not just those with identified learning disabilities. Interventions addressing decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension were included if they measured the effects on reading comprehension. 29 studies were located and synthesized.Implications for comprehension instruction for older struggling readers are described.
