This PowerPoint serves as an excellent introductory lesson or review of the important information dictionaries offer users. Each slide introduces a new reference skill term and provides examples of each term. Each slide also has fun transitions and animations to maintain student interest. The lesson will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. After viewing and discussing this lesson, my students then begin small group exploratory activities that allow them to practice their newly gained knowledge. This lesson works excellently in conjunction with a student-centered work session. Enjoy!
