Glossary Entry
As students learn vocabulary, especially vocabulary words that are related to the words they’re studying, they also learn to use dictionaries and glossaries. Glossaries can be especially handy for subject-specific words since they’re usually located at the back of the textbook. There, students can find the definition as well as the part of speech and a reference to the page on which they can find the word used in context. A good exercise to practice new vocabulary is to make a glossary or dictionary entry for a word. Students fill in the name of the word, its part of speech, definition, a contextually rich sentence, the word’s origin, and related forms. As students record all of this information, they gain a deeper understanding of the word and its use. Students can save and print their glossary or dictionary entries. They can use these pages to make personal dictionaries to refer to throughout the school year. By the year’s end they will have a strong understanding of many more words that they can access for reading, writing, and discussions both in and out of school.
