Are you looking for a student-centered, research-based, effective vocabulary study that will help your students retain new terms? This personal vocabulary study is differentiated, allowing students to select their own terms to study. Students are required to complete an in-depth study of each term, which includes research-based tasks for learning new vocabulary. This vocabulary study can be used for everything from a short article, a novel, a unit of study, or throughout the entire year.
Powerpoint (10 pages) with assignment details and examples is included. A style & language usage reproducible rubric with student checklist is also included. In addition, all 7th grade Common Core Vocabulary standards (10 total 7th ELA Standards) are listed; it would be easy to revise this task to fit another grade level. Furthermore, it is easy to modify these word documents to fit your classroom needs and teaching style.
I have also included teaching tips and directions for how to effectively use this study in your classroom.
