Evidence-Based Vocabulary Instruction 1. LINCS - This strategy does take more time to teach fewer words, so I choose to use it for those more intensive interventions 2. Synonyms/Antonyms/Homophones- There’s a ton of research out there on using word relationships to build vocabulary 3. Using Context Clues Using context clues to determine word meanings is also a great evidence-based strategy AND this one’s easy to implement.
This is a vocabulary graphic organizer known as 4 Square. It is an effective way to learn and practice vocabulary in any subject area. This product contains 1 sheet with four squares on it. Each square is divided into fourths. The student writes the vocabulary word in the center of the square, and then writes the definition, a sentence that uses the word, a synonym/antonym, and a picture in the other squares.
