Away you scullion; you rampallion; you
fustilarian! I'll tickle your catastrophe"
-William Shakespeare, from Henry IV
Every subject in college usually
deals with a specialized set of vocabulary that the students
must master. Some students may not have effective strategies
to use when learning new words and definitions. Or, they may
"memorize" a definition "textbook style"
but not truly comprehend the meaning of the word or term.
This topic will look at a variety
of ways in which students can learn, understand and remember
their course's vocabulary and terminology. I hope that it will
be extremely proficuous.
Faculty will improve ability to incorporate vocabulary instruction
into their courses.
