Product Description
These five ready-to-use activities tackle the challenges of teaching academic vocabulary, particularly challenges related to common-usage words used in content-specific ways. Use “A Word Waterfall” to examine a particularly difficult word's versatility and fundamental meaning. “Vocabulary in School and Daily Life” bridges day-to-day interactions with academic word use. A “Word Relationship Web” focuses upon a word’s connection to a specific academic topic, and “Growing Our Knowledge of Word Meanings” takes this one step further by joining content-area facts with word meanings. Finally, a “Comparing Words’ Meanings Chart” activity compares students’ prior knowledge to words’ academic applications. Time devoted to studying unit vocabulary, if done with meaningful connections, can do much to expand students’ abilities to communicate content, improve student comprehension of academic concepts, and demonstrate fundamental principles of word use.
