As this semester comes to a close, I've noticed that my students have a hard time grasping their vocabulary. On their final exams, they scored lowest on vocabulary. This is high school English. Here's what we do right now: 1. Quiz over 30 words every 3 weeks 2. Sentence writing with all 30 words the week before the quiz 3. 20-30 minutes on quizlet in the library the day before the quiz 4. Point out the vocabulary in our reading 5. At the end of the semester, a multiple test over all 120 words 6. On the final exam, 60 words for matching, broken up into sections of 10. The quizzes are matching, multiple choice, and sentence completion. The sentence completion can be tricky, but students often miss many points on the matching portion, which should be easy. I give them the definitions and two synonyms each week. The definitions are short, 1-3 words usually. Studying for vocabulary is mainly independent. Do you have any suggestions for what I can do to help them learn these and study them better, without taking up too much extra class time?
