Getting Started with Vocabulary Notebooks

Saturday, July 24th, 2021, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Nathaniel Carney

This presentation will be about general use of vocabulary notebooks as well as the specific system I have set up for my students. I will begin by discussing vocabulary notebooks in general--options to think about--and I will mention some references that might be helpful. After that, I will tell you about how I use vocabulary notebooks with my students. I will explain how and why I have been incorporating word and phrase list information into the vocabulary notebooks, and I will explain how I create individual assessments so that each student can be tested on their individual vocabulary list items. I will end by telling you about some of the problems I have experienced, and my plans for the future (of vocabulary notebooks). There will be time for discussion and questions at the end.
