Piloting a vocabulary website for the district. It is called Membean.com. The creators of the site have used research-based strategies to help students learn words. When a student is given a new word, the word is given in context - before the definition. The context clues that are given make it very easy to understand the meaning of the word. The next section is a memory hook..corny ways to remember the word. The students then get to see the word used in real life, followed by the word broken down into word parts. There is a video to allow the students see the word used in things they love. Finally, synonyms and antonyms are given. Once a student spends about 5 minutes on this page, questions will be asked. The questions reinforce words learned previously. It is a great site. I encourage everyone to check it out!
