Tutor Tip of the Month: Recording new words: a new trick

Part of learning is finding ways to make the new knowledge accessible so that we can easily access it, refer to it, and use it. For learners searching for a way to record the new words they use so that they can consult the spelling in a discrete fashion, may want to try an address book.

This tip from Read Santa Clara suggests using one of the small pocket address books as a “dictionary in the making.” Learners can record words alphabetically using the tabs already in place in the book. Then when they are out in their daily lives and want to look up a word (or add a new word) they can get out the address book and not feel they are drawing a lot of attention due to the small size.
