Discussion for Using a Dictionary
Sarah Barnes (Teacher (K-12))
This lesson is great for reinforcing the skill of using a dictionary; which is a skill that many students lack, but definitely need to know. I think the idea of using an ELMO to demonstrate how to look up words is a great way to visually teach a large group of students how to use a dictionary.
After completing the lesson as it is now, it might be a good idea to also teach them how to use online dictionaries or electronic dictionaries so the can have access to different resources.
