Hi, I teaching Geometry at an inner city school. I am trying to determine the best method to teach vocabulary to my students. I teach vocabulary in the notes as we go through the content but I am also looking for another method. Last year, I had my students fill in a vocabulary sheet before we went through the lesson. At the beginning of each period before the lesson I would fill in the sheet with them and then proceed with the lesson. This worked pretty well but did not seem to help them student necessarily with studying. I am looking for new methods to teach vocabulary. I am thinking of this year of having students fill in a paper that has three columns on it so that they can fold the paper and cover the definition so it can be used to study. Has anyone ever used this method? What other methods have you used that worked out well? Also, in the past I have done notebook checks. The method I use is to give them a quiz that has 10 questions asking about material that is in each of their binder sections. I know it is important to teach students organization, however I feel as though this may be a waste of time at the same sense. What are your thoughts on notebook checks and have you found success with using them? Thank you in advance for any advice you have to offer!
