Reflection: High Expectations Don't SHOE know your adjectives? - Section 5: Assessing this Task


One of my favorite (and most important) things to teach is vocabulary.  I like to have students use good, challenging vocabulary as often as possible.  I really think it is crucial with lessons like these to have students challenge themselves with high-quality vocabulary!  I do vocabulary study every day with my students (explicitly, through read-alouds and with our curriculum texts) so they will be prepared to think through their word choices with assignments just like this one!  When students access some higher-level words, they are really strengthening their brains for reading, writing and speaking- that is something I will be looking for when assessing!
