Reflection: Relevance Book Vocabulary - Section 1: Modeling Expectations


I try to only choose about three words per chapter. Too many words and students will not be able to use them or remember them. To actually gain words students will need to use them outside of the reading and not just as vocabulary words in worksheets. I like to try to have them use them throughout the week in their writing and speaking. This is why I keep the list to about three a chapter.
