who may struggle with new vocabulary
learning?
4. In what situations would this strategy be
most effective?
Word Mapping Strategy
To expand students vocabulary by helping them
predict the meanings of unknown words using
key language elements (roots, prefixes,
suffixes) they come across while reading.
Purpose of instruction
• To teach learners the meaning of
prefixes, suffixes, & roots
• To teach learners to use the Word
Mapping Strategy to predict the
meaning of new words
• To enable learners to “play” with and
become familiar with word patterns

Teaching Word Mapping Strategy
• Part I: Pretest
• Part II: Introduce Morphemes and the Strategy
– Prefixes
– Suffixes
– Roots
– The Strategy
• Part III: Practice the Strategy
• Part IV: Post test and Generalization
Teaching Word Mapping Strategy
Part I: Pretest
Can learners
1. identify prefixes,
suffixes and roots in
word?
2. give the meaning for
the word parts ?
3. give definitions?
• Portable

Word Mapping Strategy
Step 1: M – Map the word parts
Step 2: A – Attack the meaning of
each part
Step 3: P – Predict the word’s meaning
Step 4: S – See if you’re right!
Map the targeted
word by breaking down
into its word parts
Attack the meaning
by translating each
word part
Predict the meaning
of the word by
putting the word part
meanings together
See if your prediction
is correct by checking
with the dictionary
or someone
