Countdown to the end!
Happy June 1! We have three more weeks of school which is causing me to reflect on my work this year. I have been in many classrooms ranging from seventh grade science to social studies to English language arts to French 4 at the high school level. Much of my work has been centered around Readers'/Writers' Workshop - set-up, management, conferring. But another big topic this year has been word study/vocabulary development. I've especially enjoyed working with our world language teachers as they have many insights into vocabulary development.
Here's some of the word work with ninth grade English language arts. They used words from Romeo and Juliet and put them on a continuum from negative to positive.
