I decided this year to have the students practice their researching, comprehending, summarizing and deciphering skills through using this worksheet to digitally figure out the terminology they need to understand for the year. This document contains over 100 reading and writing terms, along with the correct website or link the students can use to help them define each of those terms in their own words. Students will receive the document and then independently research the sites given to obtain and create their own working definition of the term provided. Terms include but are not limited to:
point of view
types of writing
the writing process
verbs commonly seen in testing situations
and much more! This document can easily be converted into a Google doc to share with students.
