SERP | Word Generation - 4 views

  • The Word Generation program focuses on academic vocabulary, i.e., words that students are likely to encounter in textbooks and on tests, but not in spoken language. Interpret, prohibit, vary, function, and hypothesis are examples. Academic vocabulary includes (a) words that refer to thinking and communicating, like infer and deny, and (b) words that are common across subjects, but hold different meaning depending on the subject, like element and factor. Both types of academic vocabulary are likely to cause problems with comprehension unless students have been taught how to deal with them.
  •  
    "Word Generation is a research-based vocabulary program for middle school students designed to teach words through language arts, math, science, and social studies classes. The program employs several strategies to ensure that students learn words in a variety of contexts."

7 Online Magazines for Kids That Are Worth a Read - 0 views

  •  
    Children's magazines like their adult counterparts also have accompanying websites. A visitor who drops by won't be able to distinguish between an online magazine and a website (or blog).
