This graphic organizer chart is designed to help students learn what specific words mean when presented to them in directions and questions in/on tests, activities, interviews, and worksheets.
Enlarge at a local printing company or education agency to use as an anchor chart. This chart can also help with whole group or small group teaching or be used at a literacy center.
Separate students into groups and have each group complete a box, a row, or a column. Come back together as whole to share information.
Complete as a Carousel Report.
Display this/these on your classroom’s projection system (Elmo, overhead projector) or SmartBoard to complete as a whole group.
Use this chart as a reminder before taking assessments as to what specific words mean in the directions and in the essay question portions.
Use this to teach students how to effectively answer job, pageant, or scholarship interview questions.
Cut the chart apart on the lines and use as a matching game.
Encourage students to personalize their sheets by using colored ink pens, colored pencils, markers, and/or highlighters.
Cut out the sheet(s) and use in interactive notebooks. The print size may have to be reduced depending on the size of each student’s interactive notebook.
The final sheet is blank for you and your students to add additional words and definitions. It could also be used to differentiate instruction in which some students are asked to complete the whole sheet independently.
