Google Slides for Idioms Journal or a Vocabulary Journal
« on: April 14, 2018, 08:27:57 PM »
Google slides can be used to create an Idioms Journal or a Vocabulary Journal by students. One idea about how to use it for reading classes is that a teacher could assign students to create such journal for every three chapters of a book. Students can work on this assignment either individually or in groups.
Students will need to introduce an idiom or a vocabulary item and provide a definition an a picture (if possible) on a slide. Then, students should include the original context (a sentence) in which this item appeared in the book on the next slide. After that, students will need to find more examples of sentences in which this idiom was used. They can search in Google, for example or in one of the online dictionaries that provide examples of vocabulary.
At last, students need to include a slide with their own examples of using the idiom or the vocabulary item. This part would require teacherís feedback to make sure that students use the vocabulary correctly.
While creating such a journal, students should have many opportunities to think about the vocabulary that they are using for their journal, analyze the context and remember its meaning.
