Lession on Enviromental Science Vocabulary

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Julie Heintz (Teacher (K-12)), Dec 08, 2011

I think the lesson was very good and informative.  I didn't agree with the fact that students needed to improve their vocabulary in order to improve scores on exams.  I understand that this is a real concern for many of us teachers, but I do not feel that it should be the problem as to why we teach vocabulary.  Perhaps teaching vocabulary to help them improve reading and reading comprehension would be a better problem that needs to be faced.  Using the quizlet site for vocab review is great.  It really gives the students the power to interact with the terms, and does it in a medium with which they are familiar.  Being able to access students' results via the internet is great for the teacher as well because the teacher can then see where different students were having trouble.  Using the site and the internet may allow teachers to help individual students with their different problems.  Students who are visual can read the info, and using the internet allows kinesthetic learners and auditory learners to have access to motion and/or headphones to help them interact with the material.

Technical Remarks:

I didn't have any technical problems.
