1 College Survival Vocabulary Bingo Outcome (lesson objective) Students sort college terminology into categories and practice using vocabulary. Student/Class Goal Knowing the language used in the college catalog, class schedule, and by counselors and faculty is important as students begin their postsecondary journey. Time Frame 1 hour Standard Read with Understanding NRS EFL 4-6 Activity Addresses Benchmarks (content) Primary Benchmarks R.4.8, R.5.8, R.6.8 Supporting Benchmarks R.4.1, R.5.1, R.6.1, R.3.7, R.4.7, R.5.7, R.6.7, R.4.16, R.5.16 R.6.16 Materials College Survival Vocabulary List Handout College Vocabulary 101 Handout College Survival Bingo Cards M&Ms (or some kind of markers) Class Prizes Learner Prior Knowledge The vocabulary has been introduced in previous weeks and collected on chart paper. Instructional Activities Step 1 As part of a series of postsecondary transition lessons, there has been much discussion about college terminology. Provide students with the College Survival Vocabulary List or College Vocabulary 101 (or create list from your local college terminology). Teacher Note Although this lesson focuses on college terminology, other subject areas such as science, holiday terms, or a topic to be read about in an upcoming text can also be used. To further develop their vocabulary, students can complete a Word Sort teaching strategy using the college survival word list and categories (financial aid, admissions, academic, etc.) predefined by the teacher. In some cases, you may have a sort in which words are already sorted, or categorized. Students are challenged to think of the category names for the sorted words. Students discuss the word and meaning as they work in pairs or triads to complete the sort. Step 2 - Teacher lists vocabulary words on board while students randomly write one word in each square on their College Survival Bingo card. Provide chips (M&Ms) or other place markers. Play begins with the teacher giving students the definition/synonym/antonym or some other clue to one of the randomly drawn words. When students determine the given word, they place a marker over the word on their card. First player to have marker across a complete row, column, or diagonal wins the game. Have the winner read out the words to check they were the correct words called by the teacher. Winner gets a prize and all boards are cleared for another round. Assessment/Evidence (based on outcome) Observation of word sort activity Bingo game Teacher Reflection/Lesson Evaluation This lesson has not yet been field tested.
