Word Travelers: Using Digital Tools to Explore Vocabulary and Develop Independent Learners
Tysseling, Lee Ann
Stenhouse Publishers
The Internet is full of tools for vocabulary development, but the quality and usefulness for teachers and students vary greatly. With a traditionalist's respect for word knowledge and an adventurer's spirit for discovering new routes to learning, Lee Ann Tysseling shares an exciting array of technology-assisted resources that can boost students' literacy skills and encourage wide reading. In "Word Travelers: Using Digital Tools to Explore Vocabulary and Develop Independent Learners," Lee Ann explores engaging resources such as animated semantic networks, instant etymologies, audio pronunciation guides, and word games that battle world hunger. Beyond vetting the best digital resources for vocabulary instruction and assessment, she provides embedded video tutorials and classroom interviews to help you and your students use the same tools tomorrow.
