We realize it’s a holiday weekend and many of you are trying to come up for air in the midst of all the end-of-year chaos.
So, we offer three quick strategy videos, all centered around teaching vocabulary. If you are too close to the end of the year to implement these, put them in your back pocket for next year!
The first two highlight different approaches for teaching difficult vocabulary in high school. See how Ms. Niebur pre-teaches vocabulary words
before tackling a digital literacy topic.
Now, watch how Ms. Banks builds her students’ vocabulary
when reading science texts. This strategy is easy to apply to any grade level.
Finally, an old favorite of mine—College Talk.
I love Ms. Kim’s approach to teaching young students words that many may think could wait until later.
