If you've been to any GLAD training, there is something called Cognitive Content Dictionary that is used to introduce new vocabulary to ESL students (and really, all students in general). As the teacher, I create a huge banner with information related to CCD but then I realized I wanted my students to have a copy for themselves. I created this simple yet effective CCD sheet that students can use as they copy information from the teacher's main CCD used. This sheet is a very useful tool for students to use as they become more aware of new vocabulary. Put into their binder or other note taking containment, students can refer back to this helpful dictionary when necessary.
