Learning and retaining vocabulary...
My Year 7 students have just had exams.
The majority have done well and their hard work has paid off.
They scored fewer marks in their writing papers, though.
Their spelling really let them down
So, this is my plan to improve spelling and vocabulary retention:
When setting vocabulary learning homework make them write it out a number of times and then hand in proof that they have done it.
I've just started to do this so there's no proof it has improved their work yet.
Watch this space though, I'm sure that their test results and retention are going to get better...
