This is a list of vocabulary words for students to define. I have it organized into units as I taught them through the semester and these words parallel with the end of course test.
Teachers could take this list and regroup the terms based on the order taught. In addition, I had students keep a separate vocabulary composition book from their 3 ring binder. Homework would include:
1. Define the each term(number each term) in the composition notebook.
2. Draw an illustration for each term to help you remember(under the definition)
On the due date I would usually go around the room and check them at each students desk. This kept me from collecting the notebooks and it allowed the students to always have them to study.
