Our class is very fast-paced. It is important for students to be familiar with the vocabulary of a lesson so that they recognize the terminology before we go in-depth with it.
Each chapter, I assign a vocabulary matrix. I generally give two weekends in between the assigned date and the due date. The vocabulary matrices count towards the 40% category of my students' grades. If a student's grade is not good in my class, one of the first things I ask is, "Have you done your vocabulary matrices?"
