Developing vocabulary in English

No Gravatar

One collaborative strategy I have used which is proving to be quite effective is getting students to create a vocab list in a shared document.  We’ve been focusing on creating two lists,one of common words and one of specific words which relate directly to the text or our topic.  In this instance students are writing a film review for Tama Tu.  From this list their aim is to try and incorporate more ‘specific words’into their review.   Having created the word list students then copied the words and went to vocabulary.com where they created a new list which automatically populated definitions for the words.
