Follow-Up Focusing on English Learners and Word Learning: Thematic Dictionary

Thematic Dictionary

  1. After completing the Research Report, students work with their partner to create a Dictionary.
  2. Students create the Dictionary by listing the 10 most powerful words used in their Research Report. Students need to put the words in alphabetical order, provide a definition of the word, use it in a sentence, and include an illustration (if possible) of the word.
  3. Students will create a cover for the Dictionary and they will be displayed in the classroom library as reference materials.

Individual Research Report

  1. After completing this unit, students can complete the next Research Report without a partner. However, the teacher must still scaffold the “Writing a Research Report” steps.
