TRY IT OUT:  Down load this page and complete it with your students after giving them two more examples.

 

 

Getting Started with Knowledge-Building

 

If you teach “Dimensions of Definitions” first, you provide a base for teaching about:

*How an author defines a concept/word,

*Using context clues to determine meaning,

*Creating a Living Glossary (See Living Glossary Strategy),

*Possible Ideas (See Possible Ideas Strategy).

 

Words may be defined in a number of different ways.  See the “Dimensions of Definitions” chart below.  Change spacing to accommodate type of words/descriptors.
