Using Categories to Teach Vocab
By Chelsea Ebert
Embedded multi-media is used to start teaching a category type. They used a video form to show multiple examples. The students could see and hear the word which they were able to understand it. This is good for the students to be able to practice different ways of learning it.
In the study that they did, they found out that the Head Start students who were a low group had more success using categories than the control group. The categories seemed to cause more achievement for the students that used them.
