FA7 - Critical Vocabulary

SCROLL DOWN and follow text links

In order to gain knowledge and master skills, it is essential to be able to correctly use related vocabulary. For every course there are a number of words that are critical to the instructional process. There are four parts to this assignment: first, find a deffinition for each of the 12 words in the Computer Terminology section and include that definition after each of the words; second, find a deffinition for each of the 12 words in the Educational Terminology section and include that definition after each of the words;third, Indicate how you might include each of the Guiding Principles into classroom lessons and/or activities; fourth, (highly recommended for additional Credit) include twelve words (with their definitions) related to a subject that you teach or would like to teach.


Definitions for most of these words can be found within this ECTS 501 T-Text. If you can't find a definition there, please indicate where you did find it.

You should copy and paste all of the words on the list into a word processing document and then, when you find each definition, enter that definition into the same document. Of course you can copy and paste the definitions too, but if the word and/or the definition are unfamiliar to you, actually writing out the word and the definition will help you to remember it and the correct spelling of it.

Some scholars have found it helpful to make a 3 by 5 note card for each and every word on the list with the word on one side of the card and the definition of the word on the other side. Use those cards to help learn the words and their definitions.

All scholars are encouraged to start working on their vocabulary lists ASAP.

Please do NOT send any your vocabulary as an attachment. Copy and paste whatever you have from your FA7 document directly into the text of an e-mail message OR post it on your own personal web site and e-mail the instructor the link that leads directly to the web page where your completed FA7 Vocabulary is posted.

There is no example for FA7, so just follow the directions in the paragraphs above, and follow link just below to the ...
