This product is all you need to start student led vocabulary work. Everything is aligned to the 10th grade standards, and could easily be adjusted to match other grade levels.
How I use this in my class: Students will find a word to research and present to the class. Every 2-3 weeks we will have vocabulary tests using the words each class has chosen for themselves.
Pg. 1 The Assignment Sheet
This page gives students the instructions and help on how to choose a word and how to research it. It helps guide students to find the word's definition (and source of definition), pronunciation for the word, synonyms, antonyms, to use the word in a sentence, and to research the etymology of their chosen word.
Pg. 2 Poster Assignment
Students will create a visual aide to help them present their word to the class and to put on the wall of the classroom to aide in memorization. This page also includes an easy to use standard based rubric that grades students on the research portion, poster portion, and presentation portion of the project (4 pts each, 12 pts. in all)
Pg. 3-4 Note Sheets
Students can use these note taking sheets to create a word bank of all presented words (room for 28 students).
