Reflection: Real World Applications I Object! Strong or Weak Evidence - Section 3: Vocabulary


It was important that my students learn these words so they could be successful in our trial simulation, but they also needed to be able to use these words in life. After the work with this vocabulary, I began to hear my kids saying things like, " she speculated" or "how is that relevant?" I struggle still with making vocabulary meaningful to my students and trying to find new ways to connect new words to their lives. It's hard, but days like this I feel like I got it.
