As students take ownership for their organization, you will be able to ask them to justify their choices and before you know it – literary debate!
These awesome vocabulary activities promote student
debate and ownership of language in a dynamic and evolving
environment. I have provided starter lists, activities to be used over and over again, and assessment ideas. Once you use these ideas, you'll start seeing opportunities for awesome vocabulary EVERYWHERE!!! And when your students are arguing over the nuance of word meaning, you'll know that feeling of teacher success.
