Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Vocabulary and Reading Go Hand In Hand - Section 2: Prepare the Learner


The dictionaries serve as an accountability piece.  The discussion that centers around the illustrations helps me to see who understood the vocabulary from the story and who made it their own, so to speak.

The illustrations show the students that they are accountable for their learning and the expectation is that they remember and recall information we've learned in school.  This is not always intuitive to students, so these concrete activities help me build the sense of accountability.
