Vocabulary in the Disciplines

Question: How can vocabulary from different subject areas be used in an English class?

Answer: Teachers from all subject areas give the English teacher basic words in their subject areas. The teachers whittles the list to about 150 words.

Comment: Need to use a variety of methods to introduce the words and to reinforce their meanings. One thing is for sure: the meanings need to be reduced to one, two or three words to help in remembering them. Interesting idea. RayS.
