Reflection: Relevance Launching New Vocabulary - Section 1: Vocabulary Power

 

The reason behind this lesson is to encourage students to use better words in writing and speaking. I would like to see the class push themselves to be more comfortable with trying out new words and taking that risk whenever they can. In speaking I can encourage this more often, I give many opportunities and prompt students to try out new words. In writing this is more difficult. I might give a student a vocabulary goal when I read with them. I might ask them to learn one new word that they read and then use it in their writing sometime throughout the week.
