Did you ever work on vocabulary lists as a student? If you did, you probably had a sheet of paper with words followed by a blank space for the definition. 7th grade students at FDR Middle School in Bristol, Pa. are working on this traditional assignment in an exciting new way! At FDR, one English teacher is turning this into a group project. Students are using their tablets to create a shared document where the vocabulary list is stored. Students can collaborate easily and learn from their peers as they work to define different vocabulary words.
