So, LOTS of modeling on different types of context clues. Pick up When Kids Can't Read and look at chapter on vocabulary.

This is an amazing piece as the context clues - which are there - require very careful reading and some sophisticated inferring. I think I'll use this piece in our next workshop to get teachers to discuss how they would teach kids to use the context AS a clue.

Not so much just keep going as decide what to do to figure out the word's meaning - look it up, study a part of the word, ask someone . . .

I pulled research that's been around to show that this isn't new. We haven't recently discovered that reading is valuable. You can easily take each of those areas and do a fast search for academic articles on those topics if you want to show that it's still valuable.
