Increasing Students Vocabulary in the secondary classroom

Course description: 

Articulating your ideas requires an understanding of the topic as well as a grasp of the language to adequately describe your ideas. Students often have great ideas but struggle to explain them properly because of a lack of general vocabulary or a lack of the specific vocabulary related to the topic their are focusing on. This course will explore activities that both engage and extend students use of vocabulary to improve the quality of their writing.
