Seeing and using new words repeatedly and in many contexts is critical for Vocabulary acquisition. In discussions, reading, and writing, teachers can provide students multiple opportunities to see, understand, and apply new Vocabulary words, as well as chances to use strategies for identifying unfamiliar words.
Watch how this sixth grade teacher explicitly teaches new Vocabulary and uses multiple examples to demonstrate how the words can be used. Along with the definition of the word and the part of speech, she gives relevant examples and uses think-pair-share for students to practice using the word.
Videos are chosen as examples of strategies in action. These choices are not endorsements of the products or evidence of use of research to develop the feature.
