Many students will complete vocabulary assignments, but do not seem to incorporate the new diction into their writing or recognize those same words when they encounter them within a text. Worksheets and drilling exercises are effective for only some learners and class time that can be dedicated to vocabulary instruction is limited when you consider the multitude of other standards a teacher must address. In order to give students other options to extend their exposure to and allow for different learning styles in acquiring new vocabulary, an action research project will be undertaken that incorporates best practices in vocabulary instruction with a special focus on incorporating morphology and technology in the form of a web-based flashcard program.
