I’m getting my words from a GRE list :) so there are some I already know pretty well. Let me know if you want the actual PDFs for the words instead of my handwriting! (I only write them because I’m a person who needs to write to learn) 7 months ago
Cheerful readiness, promptness, or willingness.
Pronounced uh-lak-ri-tee 11 months ago
I’ve had 19 students look up and use the word of the day over the last three weeks. What is really cool is that a few of them are still using the word even after the week is over!
This week’s word is “Astute” of keen perception or insight. 16 months ago
I had five students that went to the website to look up the word and three students that were able to use it in a sentence. I have very small classes, so I was happy with that result for the first try.
The new word is “obfuscate” – to confuse or bewilder hopelessly 16 months ago
I am trying a new experiment to improve my vocabulary and get my students to check my website. I am posting a word of the week on my teacher webpage. If a student uses the word correctly during class I will get them a candy bar of their choice for the next class. I will also try to use the word a few times myself. A few of the students seemed interested but I will have to see if I get any takers. The first word I chose was “acumen” – keen insight/ability to judge well. 16 months ago
