Teaching Vocabularly: Providing an Academic Lifeline

IMG_0235

How is vocabulary integrated into your reading and writing composition curricula? I am constantly searching for new ways to incorporate vocabulary. In my reading and writing course, this semester, I feel as though I never have enough time to devote to the basics of building a strong vocabulary. However, I believe that vocab-building activities yield tremendous benefits. That is why I have incorporated an activity from The Ultimate Book of Words Students Should Know into each of my writing and reading courses. It is too early for me to tell how these activities impact students’ learning and comprehension, but I do know that my students are excited about filling their notebook with new words from this delightful book.
