How To Remember The Meaning Of Vocabulary Words For A Middle School Reading Comprehension
What's the secret to remembering the meaning of vocabulary words?
A good way to help learn vocabulary words is to write them in a sentence that reflects their meaning. It's easy to put a word in any sentence, for example "Ann is benevolent." but you need to explain what benevolent means by the sentence you're creating. So: "Ann is benevolent because she gives to many charities and does lots of non profit work." meaning that Ann is an extremely generous person based on what you've written in that other part the sentence. Always think back. You need to know what that word means based on the sentence you've written. This may seem kind of tedious when you're doing it, but when you're back on a test you can think; "Benevolent. What does that mean?" and you can think back to your sentence and remember what you had to write in order to explain that word to yourself.
