Please excuse the repeating of this introduction; I would not like you to miss out on the introductory exercises.
When I was a student at Teacher Training College during the sixties,(64 to 67) we were sent out on teaching practice in the various surrounding schools. One of the most important things our Tutors looked for was our -Lesson Plans- A successful lesson needed proper planning, and if you failed teaching practice the entire 3years went up in smoke.
I do not recall if I was ever taught strategically -how to learn the Dictionary- Nor can I recall ever teaching it. Our method for enhancing the vocabulary was mainly by reading and conversation. Word stitch will be used as a tool to grow the vocabulary by learning the dictionary.
Have you ever tried reading the dictionary from cover to cover as you would read a book? I know I never thought of it until Word Stitch.
The plan is to read and study all the words beginning with the letters in the alphabet. In case you missed it, we have already covered 12 pages of C, 6 pages of S and all pages of K, Q. X. Y. Z.
If you have not completed exercises 1 to 7, perhaps you should complete those exercises before completing this one, or you can complete this exercise, and if you are seriously interested in learning the dictionary, go back and complete all previous exercises.
I have also created a revision exercise. This exercise will introduce three new letters- J. V. O and C because of it’s the letter with the largest number of words in the dictionary.
Study all the words from the following letters.
J -all pages
V -First 6 Pages
O- First 6 Pages
C- 6 + 12 = 18 pages; please study in chronological order.
The learning process will take some time, in order to carefully study the words and their meaning if necessary; then apply a practical technique to demonstrate your success at learning.
The technique is using the game – Word Stitch. A word game that challenges your vocabulary.
Please do not use proper names or places.
First read all the words out aloud, then repeat reading the words silently.
Look up the meaning of any new words, or any word you are unsure of its meaning.
Keep a note book to record all new words, or any words that you feel could be useful in a sentence.
1. Create as many four -word sentences or headlines using words beginning with C. J. V. O. in the order the letters are listed.
2. Create as many four-word sentences or headlines, using words beginning with the four letters, but in any order.
Examples-1. Consider jogging, vaulting, oaring.
2. Collect old vintage jaguars.
