3 (free!) ways to share bookmarks with students using Wibki. I’m always on the lookout for great free tech tools for teachers, so I was excited when Wibki reached out to me about reviewing their site.

3 (free!) ways to share bookmarks with students using Wibki

Wibki is a completely free tool for saving and sharing your favorite websites, and it’s especially nice for teachers because it’s an easy and highly visual way to bookmark sites for students. Here’s what Wibki is all about in 55 seconds: This is what students see when they navigate to the home page of the Wibki site I created. (It looks identical on the back end when I’m logged in, except I then have the ability to edit.) The sidebar on the left shows the different groups or categories I created for my favorite sites: Games, Free Choice, Habitats, and Presentations. Curating your favorite websites for students is a easy, quick, and intuitive process. An even easier way to add sites to Wibki is through the free extension for the Chrome browser. 1) Bookmark credible websites students should use to conduct research.

How Not to Teach Context Clues. To most intermediate, middle, high school, and college teachers, teaching context clues means helping students consciously identify and apply strategies to figure out the meaning of unknown words through hints in the surrounding text.

How Not to Teach Context Clues

These hints include pictures, syntax, text format, grammatical constructions, mood or tone, mechanics, and surrounding words that provide synonym, antonym, logic, or example clues Many of these teachers would also label the structural analysis of the unknown word itself as a context clue. Using morphemes (meaningful word parts, such as Greek and Latinates), syllabication strategies, grammatical inflections, and parts of speech also can help students figure of the meaning of unknown words.

Some teachers would also include using hints outside of the text, such as prior knowledge or story schema in their definition and application of context clue strategies. On one side of the battle are the “Phonic-ators.” On the other side are the “Whole Language Junkies.” Context Clues Worksheets High School.
