Strategy 2: Word Bench
A word bench/sort is an activity which requires students to pronounce new vocabulary, review the new words, and see if they can identify similarities/differences (Moore, D. W., Moore, S. A., Cunningham, P. M., & Cunningham, J. W. , 2011). Word sorts also help students in developing their metacognitive thinking skills.
Strategy 3: Word Book/Organizer
Word books are "vocabulary notebooks in which students record the words they are learning" (Moore et al., 2011). Often times, the words entered are accompanied by a picture, definition, or individual example. Students create meaningful connections with new words by creating a personalized book, similar to a dictionary.
Strategy 4: Scavenger Hunt
Strategy 5: Capsule Vocabulary
Moore et al. (2011) describes the capsule vocabulary strategy as one which encourages practice of new vocabulary. This strategy focuses on practice and application more than just rote learning, which makes the vocabulary more meaningful and understanding.
Strategy 1: Frayer Model
The Frayer Model is a vocabulary learning device which requires students to "define the vocabulary words or concepts and apply this information by generating examples and non-examples" (All About Adolescent Literacy, n.d.). This strategy encourages students to utilize their higher thinking skills and make connections to new vocabulary.
A vocabulary scavenger hunt is an interactive strategy which enables students to bring in realia and make connections with the new words they are learning. Each unit would have a pre-assigned list of words for the scavenger hunt and students would bring in a variety of items to serve as item definitions. (Moore et al., 2011).
