Get creative with teaching vocabulary! This handout asks users to take a vocabulary word and pretend it's applying for a college scholarship. Questions include which scholarship the word is applying for, what qualities the word possesses that make it a good candidate, and potential college major, among others. Students answer the prompts as though the word were answering the prompts, forcing students to think critically about a word, its meaning, and its synonyms and antonyms, as well as connotations and denotations.
No more memorization! Students will love intimately interacting with these words. Not solely for use with English vocabulary words. Help students learn history terms, scientific terms, even math terms!
Contains a cover page, teacher instructions, handout and handout with completed example.
