Web-based Activity: With Games, Students Examine their Understanding of and Apply New Vocabulary

Posted on 03/23/2017


In the March 2017 Web-based activity article, Kristi Reyes refers the six-step approach to teach vocabulary by Dr. Robert Marzano, a direct instruction process that begins with the teacher introducing a term. Subsequent activities are designed to expose students to newly-learned vocabulary multiple times, thus reinforcing their comprehension of new words. The final step of the process gives students the opportunity to apply the vocabulary they have learned in games.

Kristi goes on to describe some useful sites for creating customized games with the vocabulary you are teaching your students. These online tools include Sugarcane, Educaplay, Quizizz, eQuizShow, Flip Quiz. Find many more online tools and resources for teaching and practicing vocabulary in this March Web-based Activity article.

You can find step-by-step instructions and ideas for activities in the March Web-based Activity article .
