October 24 - October 27

Students have been doing an amazing job generating terms for whole group study from The Outsiders.  This week their critical searches continued.  They responded to two surveys that I sent to their email accounts.  The surveys asked them to indicate the terms that they were unsure of or having difficulty understanding.  We took the results of those surveys and created word clouds using Tagxedo.  A word cloud emphasizes terms used most frequently.  After analyzing the clouds, students were easily able to determine the terms most in need of study.  You can find the whole list at SpellingCity - a great place to practice spelling and learning new words using games, flashcards, and tests.
