The expectation that a short-term vocabulary intervention, whatever its quality, will produce large improvements in reading comprehension is simply not realistic. This is not to say that vocabulary interventions are not worthwhile, or that they should not be expected to impact comprehension positively. But, 2. WHY INSTRUCTION NEEDS TO BE LONG-TERM 39 as I hope the following sections make clearer, the complexity and reciprocal nature of the vocabulary-comprehension connection makes it much more likely that effects of vocabulary instruction will tend to be long-term and cumulative, rather than short-term and dramatic.

FIG. 1. A reciprocal model of vocabulary and reading comprehension. 2. WHY INSTRUCTION NEEDS TO BE LONG-TERM 35 Stanovich (1986) used vocabulary growth as an example of his well-known Matthew effects. The rich tend to get richer. Students with larger vocabularies understand text better and so they read more. As they read more, they learn additional words, which makes their vocabularies even larger. Conversely, the poor tend to get poorer. Students with smaller vocabularies do not understand text as well, and as a consequence are likely to read less.

For students with more normal vocabularies, phonological awareness was linked to early literacy. This may be a bit hard to visualize, so let me say it another way: If students' vocabularies are too small, phonological awareness does not contribute to their knowledge about print. If students' levels of phonological awareness are too low, vocabulary does not contribute to their knowledge about print. In other words, the extent to which phonological awareness contributes to knowledge about print depends on vocabulary and vice versa.
