This is the first of a growing ACT and SAT vocabulary unit. These words commonly appear on standardized tests and in literature.
This bundle contains 15 ACT and SAT vocabulary words on a PowerPoint (with definitions, synonyms, antonyms, and example sentences), a student note-taking sheet, three different practice assignments (homework or in class), task cards, a unit quiz, a modified quiz, and answer keys. You will have everything you need to help students learn the ACT and SAT vocabulary words short of the discussion you will have with your students about them.
I have used this method of teaching vocabulary with my middle and high school students for a while, and it's always been successful. I've even had students tell me that mine are the only ones they remember!
What works about this unit? I introduce them through direct instruction, discuss them daily, assign various forms of practice, have students make connections, and work in analysis from different angles...it works! Make sure to discuss the words with your students each day. Challenge them...if they can give you the definition of every vocab word you've done so far, you have to do 10 push ups! If they can't, they "have to" do them! Make it fun.
This unit won't disappoint, and more units are in the works. Enjoy, and please leave feedback.
