Literacy Support during the Guided Activity

Teachers increase students' literacy in new tech and work-ready vocabulary by creating a Word Wall and/or individual vocabulary binders in their classrooms. Each Digitability lesson plan includes a lesson badge and definition that are print ready and able to be displayed in a classroom.

Having a Word Wall helps build vocabulary, thereby improving reading comprehension and writing skills. It will also reinforce students’ understanding of subject-specific terminology with a focus on students internalizing key concepts. Visual supports, like a word wall, help students improve spelling. Having key vocabulary accessible in a classroom allows for students and teachers to embed those terms into lessons and conversations.
