The story behind the resource:


There was a student at our school that kept carrying around this notebook.  We all noticed it, but we didn't really ask because we could tell that he didn't want to share. He wouldn't let anyone see it. All the teachers knew it was there, but no one asked.

It was a notebook full of vocabulary.


He was a professional word collector. You might call him a walking dictionary. When he watched TV, he took notes. In class, he took notes. In conversations, he would take notes. If there was a word or phrase that he didn't know, he would write it down. He would ask for you to spell it or say it again. It was incredible. It was his own personal dictionary.


He knew a few things about language learning:

•Taking a photo on your phone won't help your memory

•He was in control of his own learning

•Slang and formal language were both important, just for different situations

•What real people say is very important

•It was okay to ask someone to repeat what they didn't know
