    For the first time in a long time, my audience really understood the nuts and bolts of Academic Vocabulary! I am so pleased with the presentation and honestly can't wait to do it again next month for a new group!

    I used this Powerpoint recently when I was training my district kindergarten staff--several were brand new to teaching and this presentation really gave them something they can put to use immediately.

Product Questions

  • Does anyone still promote writing definitions to a list of 20 or more words? I used to have that in my training a long time ago but my teachers tell me kids don't respond to that. Since that doesn't seem to work, does anyone have a good website or two?

    • You're quite right; most instructors do not have students copying definitions from a dictionary; it doesn't promote learning, rather hinders it. Look at Lingro.com; it transforms an entire webpage into "clickable" text that defines every word on it just by clicking on it. Also, look at transl8it.com; it will translate English into text lingo and vice versa. I use it for new vocabulary and everyone loves it.
