Teaching Strategies

Disappearing Definition

Write the definition on the white board. The teacher reads the definition to the students. The students chorus the definition back. The teacher rubs out every seventh word and a student reads out the text including the missing word. The teacher rubs out every seventh word and a student reads out the entire text. The teacher continues rubbing out until there is no text on the board. The students then write the definition into their books from memory.
