We all learn 90% of what we teach and 10% of what we are taught. This graphic organizer asks students to teach two new pieces of vocabulary to other students from currently assigned texts and gather information on other unfamiliar vocabulary from classmates
Moving around, socializing and learning are all combined in this amazingly successful activity for learning vocabulary in context to master CCSS RI.4 or RL.4.
This assignment may be adjusted for any text simply by changing the title on the uploaded Word document, or you can make any other changes such as reducing the number of entries or scaffolding to assist struggling learners.
I used it as an activator to refresh information from text we read for a previous class.
The instructions are included on the graphic organizer to help students after your initial instruction and explanations.
