Teaching a concept and students are not understanding? Do you jump right into a unit and do not know what vocabulary the students know? Fix this by using the vocabulary worksheets. I have used these in my class and it helps all students understand vocabulary.
Included in this packet is:
Vocabulary rating chart: Can be cut out and glued in ISN's or hole punched and put into a binder. Use at the beginning of a unit to assess what students already know.
Concept definition map: Concepts that have many components confuse students. Use this to break down the definition and help students understand the term.
