Content Literacy Journal Entry No. 3
The strategies that were introduced this week all centered on vocabulary. Vocabulary is a very important part of our world and day to day lives. My parents were always adamant about my bother and I reading to broaden our minds. In reading, we constantly came across words that were unfamiliar to us. We learned very quickly to keep a dictionary close by, so that we could look up these words. I suppose this is why I found these strategies so fascinating. I just really enjoyed learning about the different formats that vocabulary can be introduced: before, during, and after a lesson.
