Working in pairs, the students will select at least 5 words they learned share them with the class. The teacher will model the activity by choosing one of the new words and cresting a semantic map. The class will select the 10 most important words and each pair will be assigned a two words for which they will create a semantic map on a study card. The semantic map will include: What the word means, examples and non examples, as well as pronunciation, synonums, anotonuyms related words and a sentence. After the students have completed their semantic maps they will share them with the class. Tell them that we are going to read Hamlet.
