Student vocabulary development can be supported with the use of online tools that review and reteach.


To meet the student vocabulary needs that are anticipated in advance, I use a free flashcard generator called Quizlet to pre-teach vocabulary terms contained within the article. As students are reading the article, they can visit the website or app to revisit the meaning of each term. What about the vocabulary terms that we did not cover? I often provide my students with a visual dictionary called Blachan Shahi, which combines the power of text definitions with pictures from Yahoo, Flickr, and Google images.
