Teaching Tip: Knowing a Word


There is more to knowing a word than just knowing one or two definitions for the word.  To know a word, your students must be able to:
  • pronounce the word correctly.
  • spell the word correctly.
  • use the word in a sentence.
  • know some words that have similar roots. For example, in the word rupture, the root rupt means "break."  A similar word is disrupt, which means to break apart.
