This week Middle School teachers attended our literacy handbook workshop focused on using thinking maps for vocabulary review. Participants were introduced to the In Here, Out There Vocabulary Review routine to support synonym practice, content review and real world connections to vocabulary. Additionally, teachers explored the potential ways to use circle maps for literary device analysis, discussion note-taking and end of unit review. Check out our new resources below.
