dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the effect of teaching vocabulary through the use of categorized word lists as compared to random word lists. An oral pretest and posttest was used as an evaluating device. Two groups of fifth-grade students were presented vocabulary by categorized lists while two groups were presented the identical vocabulary by random lists. A correlated t-test to compare individual students’ scores and an analysis of covariance computing an F-ratio were used to test the hypotheses presented in this study. The findings of this study suggest that performance of fifth-grade students on an oral vocabulary posttest was directly related to the teaching of specific vocabulary words. There was no significant difference between the scores of those fifth grade students taught by categorized lists compared to those student s taught by random lists.
