Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Does the student have difficulty telling the difference between similar words they hear? Words like “thorn” and “torn” sound similar. For words like these, make sure the student knows they can use the Replay button to hear the word repeated as many times as they want. The more the student practices hearing the word, the more likely they are to succeed with the task. Is the student struggling to remember the academic vocabulary words? Have students use a graphic organizer, such as a Frayer model, so they can create multiple representations of a word to help solidify their understanding of new words. Ask students to provide the following: • a definition in their own words • a visual representation of the word • examples of the word • non examples of the word Is the student staying engaged with the activity?

Remind the student that advancing through content depends on correct answers. 56 Robo-Dog Teacher Manual
