Chrome Browswer Tips and Tricks for Students - Google Dictionary Extension

The Google Dictionary Extension gives you one click instant access to definitions and pronunciations for words you encounter on the Web.

Lesson idea

  1. Find an article(s) that you would like students to read and which you know contains words that may be misunderstood or unknown
  2. Ask students to add the Google Dictionary Extension to their Chrome Browser
  3. Have students identify unknown words, view the basic definition and the additional resources linked to the definition
  4. Encourage students to click on the audio icon to hear unfamiliar words read outloud
  5. Have students open a Google Doc to collect words they find
  6. Use a Google form to collect an "exemplar" word from each student for accountability and to build a class collaborative resource
