GC121 – WordTech – Visionary Tool

GC121-S4 – WordTech Visionary – In a four-step process, Alexa or Instructor will guide students, individually, with a partner, in a small group and/or class, to conduct a ”Word Preview” by scanning the reading material and writing down each new term on a separate index card (or left column of notebook paper, folded vertically).  Next, students will be directed to write a common definition of the term.  Then, write the definition again, in the context of the lesson, and identify something similar or familiar to the term.  Last, students will be directed to create a Vocabulary Visionary File by drawing a picture of the definition on the backside of each card (or right column of their paper). (Infusing Graphic Organizers and Pictures– 27% increase in student achievement – Marzano, Pickering and Pollack). (Option – Reading Journal Entry)
