Reflection: Unit Planning The Vocabulary Notebook - Section 2: The Resource


I tend to make a vocabulary notebook like this for every unit I teach. The familiar format helps students stay focused on the task rather than trying to interpret a new document each time. When finished with a unit, students keep these in the vocabulary section of their binders and use as reference throughout the year. The video included in this section shows students sharing information they collected on a couple of terms during one of their partner practice periods. Students use it as a place to keep all of their collected notes during a unit so that everything is together and easy to find.
