Each day you should choose a ‘word of the day’ which you can select from your TA Dictionary. This could be a word you have encountered in your studies or a word you are curious to learn more about.

Many of you will be familiar with the Frayer model which has been used across curriculum areas. You should write the word in the middle, then fill in the sections around the outside. Firstly you should write the definition of the word in the appropriate section. In the next section, you should note the characteristics of the word or draw an image to represent the concept. In the next, you should list examples of the word in a sentence. Finally, you should list non-examples of the word.
