Description

In this lesson, from ReadWriteThink, students are introduced to the vocabulary self-collection strategy, using an online Shakespeare text as an example. This strategy involves having students choose the words they want to learn, chat about their rationale for selecting words, and agree upon words for a classroom collection. This strategy is an effective approach to helping students understand the meanings of new words, use them in conversations and writing, and make personal connections with words while reading. The strategy also encourages students to use the words for authentic tasks and on a regular basis in their writing. Less
