What is your advice about? Key words (not just for English teachers)
1: Write the word and share it in a full sentence – use sentence context to support meaning.
2: Pull the word apart by looking at the morphemes – use knowledge of other words here.
3: Pull the word apart looking at the etymology – where else have they heard that root word/suffix/prefix?
4: Link the word to lots of contexts including other subjects / life outside school.
5: Make sure students know how to pronounce the word in different contexts – they need to see. hear and say the word!
