There may be a number of lessons this activity could support for building vocabulary knowledge and aptitude. Challenging students to find words that give evidence of a passage's theme, tone, and mood is one example. Each line in the grid would need to be filled with three words that provide such evidence after students have read the passage independently, in pairs, or as a class. Text to talk and talk to text features could be added to ensure accessibility. The grid activity could be used as a "do now" or "exit ticket" requirement.

Partial alignment by covering only the communicating, asking questions, make choices, and understand connections part of standard and should be considered as part of a unit that would address the standard. The higher ordering type verbs like think creatively, develop and test innovative ideas, synthesize knowledge, and solve problems might occur but not required for the resource to be successful.

Motivation: Superior (3)

The idea of talking to different students for each row and/or column will increase the motivation of the students.

Appropriateness: Superior (3)

The teacher can decide what vocabulary words to use, the words would be appropriate for the given subject, and variations are encouraged.

The resource is a great way to assess if students understand the words being used in the sentence(s). However, creatively is required nor critical thinking.

I am a 12th grade English teacher and appreciate this resource for its flexible applications and elements of student choice. That said, this resource should be considered partially aligned to a variety of Language standards (L.1, L.2, L.6) and could be used as part of a unit/course that addresses these standards over time.

Teachers using this resource will need to provide additional instruction, modeling, expectations, etc. to focus the student learning objective on a particular Language standard (e.g., conventions of grammar, other writing mechanics, usage, etc.). Additionally, there would need to be a rubric and/or guidance on appropriately combining words from the bank into a sentence to avoid students simply generating lists or other constructions that do not reflect a true understanding of the words and/or their relationships with one another. With some remixing, I think this could be a particularly effective tool for practice with parts of speech and most appropriate for ongoing formative assessment; although, it could be used summatively as well.
