Students will develop, acquire and accurately use vocabulary in context, based on their language needs.   Together with their teacher, they select and create vocabulary lists from a given reading selection. As they learn new/unknown words in context, students will determine definitions, as well as clarify definitions and use of multiple meaning words and phrases and be able to apply knowledge of language to understand vocabulary terms in different contexts.
