Dictionary Use

Bring dictionaries back into your classroom! Although it's often preferred to look up a word's definition on a computer or smart phone, we still need to practice this important skill. Middle and high schoolers investigate how to use the dictionary to find the meaning of an unknown word and research the meanings of words. They use dictionaries to enhance their vocabulary with this activity.
