Lesson Planning of Study Skill-I
Students` Learning Outcomes
- Use textual aids such as table of contents and glossary for greater comprehension of texts.
Information for Teachers
- Table of content can help the students to find the units and chapters. It also gives information about the type of text i.e. poem, story, dialogue, fiction, and non-fiction.
- A glossary is an alphabetical list of terms in a particular area of knowledge with the definitions for those terms. Traditionally, a glossary appears at the end of a book and includes terms within that book, which are either newly introduced. (See sample of glossary at the end of this book.)
- Try to use their textbook (math/science) to find new words for teaching.
