In this time of digital revolution students often don’t know how to navigate the use of a book. A glossary is like a specific search engine for a book. When you use a glossary properly you can find exactly what you are looking for quickly in a text. Terms are usually listed alphabetic and they highlight the topics within mostly nonfiction books. Dictionaries are helpful not only because they help introduce us to the meaning of new words, but also how to use those words in our own language by explaining the contextual use of the term. Dictionaries can also help us understand languages of the past and get a better understanding of history. These worksheets will help students learn how to best use dictionaries and glossaries.
