Interactive word walls put the students in charge of their vocabulary understanding. Classes can add pictures, labels, even real-world objects to the word wall to increase understanding of concept-specific words. These word walls allow for differentiation throughout classes, as different classes can add the specific supports they need. This would be an engaging way to assist students with their vocabulary understanding.
