Video-assisted vocabulary instruction for elementary school students with learning disabilities

Students with learning disabilities in grades 4-6 were taught vocabulary through a traditional anchored instruction approach (using printed materials and the teacher) or a videodisc-based anchored instruction approach. Both groups improved vocabulary and passage comprehension, but students in the videodisc group made significantly greater performance gains on a word definition test.
