Why did I create this product??
According to John Hattie, author of “Visible Learning: A Synthesis of Over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement,” teaching vocabulary explicitly in the classroom has an affect size of 0.98. What this means is that if a teacher will take the time to teach vocabulary slowly, explicitly, and in detail, 98% of students will benefit from that instruction. To put this number into perspective, Hattie also found that a teacher’s average affect size is between 0.20 and 0.40. Vocabulary makes a difference!

I designed this product with 7th-8th graders in mind, so feel free to modify it for higher or lower level learners.
