Reflection: Modeling Habitats - Section 3: Explain


Students with language and learning difficulties often have trouble with new and complex vocabulary words.  For this lesson, I chose to have students gather information about the vocabulary using a video clip.  The video pauses at each word and provides the students with a written definition that they copy into their notes sheet.  Ideally, students would take notes on their own and identify with the words with their own unique definitions.  However, this isn 't always doable for students on the first try.  Taking an already created definition and reviewing it and making personal connections, done later in the lesson, can sometimes be just as effective.
