PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Create new meanings and meet common core vocabulary standards – without boring “make-a-sentence-with-new-words” assignments.

HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT

Standards addressed include and reach beyond, L.11-12.6. Acquire and use accurately general academic and domain-specific words and phrases, sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening at the college and career readiness level; demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression.

o Students are given a variety of vocabulary activities designed to expose students to unfamiliar words.
o Students demonstrate the ability to identify vocabulary words and unfamiliar phrases within a text.
o Students demonstrate the ability to research the meaning of a word and how it is used.
o Students create a list of grade-appropriate academic (i.e. common words used in testing—analyze, justify, reiterate, trace), and domain-specific (i.e. subject-specific words such as hypothesis, inference, ratify, ratio) words.
o Students demonstrate the ability to use these words in the appropriate context.
o Students gather a personal list of unfamiliar vocabulary words.
o Students articulate the meaning of unfamiliar words based upon the context clues, connotation, or definition given.
o Students use previously unfamiliar words in an appropriate and accurate manner.
The brain based tasks allow students to elucidate and play with new words. All materials are CCSS aligned.

Students learn to spot new or unfamiliar words in their texts and line these up to rock new meanings. Words differ for diverse students and this set of tasks allows for differences. The materials are completed alone or in teams.

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.

All the best as you learn and lead with the brain in mind!
