|Grades Taught:||9th, 11th|
|Using Vocabulary.com for:||3 Years|
We are an academically oriented school, and these kids work really hard. Achievement is important to them. And they do Vocabulary.com because they know it is an expectation.
As far as in the classroom, I just can’t spend a lot of time on vocab, so for the students I’d say 90% of their practice — if not more — is done outside of the classroom.
...we’ve clearly set those expectations for them, and now it’s just kind of embedded in the culture of our school, and in our department, and with individual teachers.
...before this, using workbooks, it was very time consuming and a lot of work. Teaching with Vocabulary.com is a lot easier!
Giving them access to the vocabulary ahead of time makes the reading easier, and then they actually enjoy it because they get it.
