What does it look like?

Word MappingThe purpose of the Word Mapping strategy is to promote the students’ deeper understanding of words by finding relationships between and among words. When to use it? Most teachers use the Word Mapping strategy to introduce new vocabulary before reading. QUICK TIPStudents share their maps with others. Have students share their maps with the class. During this sharing period, students use the information on their word maps to develop and expand the class map.

What is it? Vocabulary is the student’s understanding of oral and print words. Vocabulary building occurs during time as the students get exposed to new material, experiences and concepts. They have more opportunities to apply their words to different scenarios and they learn how to make connections.

A Quick Introduction

Providing Definitions that Assist in Word LearningThe focus of word introductions is to provide meaningful explanations of a new word with multiple examples that are scaffolded by the teacher. QUICK TIPS---LD will require ongoing exposure and use of new words to assure that they understand and retain the meaning and use of the words. ---If the students are using the dictionary, you can also ask them to rewrite the definitions in their own words not just to copy exactly what they see on the dictionary.

Using Mnemonic or Key Word StrategiesMnemonic or key word strategies are memory strategies that assist students in memorizing the definitions of new words. Students with LD benefit from connections created by linking a familiar keyword or image with a new vocabulary word. Remember: When students create this themselves it takes more time and requires careful monitoring and feedback.
