* noel macrae has written two books on teaching vocabulary for beginning esl: the teaching and learning of english vocabulary: a guide to teaching and assessing english vocabulary in elementary and middle school (prentice hall, 1989) and vocabulary in the classroom: a guided language assessment approach (prentice hall, 1993). although teachers who have tried the teaching/assessment approach in macrae's books will appreciate this book, i think it will be of most interest to researchers. writing and language editors janet feuer and barbara morris have edited the teaching of english vocabulary , which contains a wealth of information on teaching vocabulary in elementary and middle schools. the most useful thing about the teaching of english vocabulary is that macrae lists teachers of english as a second language who have used his approach in their schools. macrae also provides "a list of vocabulary terms that must be taught early in e.s.l. classes" (p. 61) and a further list of words "that should be emphasized in the early instruction of students who are learning english" (p. 63).
