A dictionary is an important and powerful tool in a student's hand. My class room has two dictionaries and my students are constantly getting up to use them. The rule of thumb in my classroom is that I do not give definitions and the students must look words up themselves. To have 40 dictionaries in the classroom would make it easier for each to have one ON HAND during each class. Teaching Social Studies is that much easier if each student has a dictionary in their hands, even during tests. My 11th graders should have a better understanding of words and having these dictionaries would greatly help. In total I have 154 students spread out over four class periods. Students will pick up a dictionary when they enter the room and put it back when they exit the room at the end of the period. As I stated earlier the dictionary could be a very important weapon against illiteracy and will help my student while they prepare for the New York State Regents Exams.
