I developed this vocabulary building resource when I was responsible for implementing a content-based learning program for young learners in South Korea. Content-based learning can often require students to learn a lot of vocabulary, some of it technical and some of it very culture-based. One thing I noticed was that students were learning the meanings of all these new words, but were having trouble using them in sentences of their own.
This vocabulary builder requires students to document key content words from subject-based readings, diagrammatically show they know what each word means, find two sentences that utilize the word from the learning materials and then make two new sentences of their own using the word. The thirty page supplement features a cover, an index page for the words entered, an example page showing how words are to be entered and applied, and then slots for 100 vocabulary items.
Using this resource is plenty of hard work for students and teachers, but it is highly effective for presenting models of usage to the students and providing them with opportunities to try out vocabulary for themselves.
