myVocab is the ideal application to deepen students' knowledge of words and word-learning strategies, providing convenient access to unlimited customized word lists and vocabulary development activities.
Research emphasizes that vocabulary development is a vital part of all content learning, and the link between vocabulary knowledge and comprehension is undeniable. To deepen students' knowledge of word meanings, students should be taught both specific words and word-learning strategies. With an instructional plan that includes how to select words to teach and activities that engage students in exploring word meanings, myVocab helps students attain a deeper understanding of language and concepts so that they can steadily expand their repertoire of words and phrases.

myVocab activities provide many opportunities for students to explore the meanings of words that are related to books they're reading and that they're learning in various content areas or subjects. By using these activities, students develop concepts, learn the meanings of words, and make associations among words. The interactive activities and games offer opportunities for scaffolding, differentiation, and assessment.myVocab assessments help teachers evaluate how well students are solving, defining, and applying the words that have been targeted for instruction.
Activities and assessments can be utilized in school and/or at home. Assessments can be either informally or digitally scored. Digitally scored assessments are captured for monitoring progress and for reporting purposes.
Schoolwide's myVocab app is powered by Collins COBUILD dictionaries. Collins COBUILD dictionaries are pedagogically rich, engaging, language learning tools that not only help learners understand the meanings of words, but also show learners how to use words correctly and appropriately.
About COBUILD Dictionaries: The Collins COBUILD dictionaries have been written to meet the needs of learners of English. They were the very first dictionaries to be based completely on corpus data; the very first dictionaries to give examples of real language in use from corpus (the Bank of English™); and were the first dictionaries to use a full-sentence defining style that follows how a teacher might explain meanings in the classroom. COBUILD dictionaries give examples of real English, taken from the Bank of English™. This means that learners can rely on COBUILD dictionaries to give them a true picture of how English is used, and examples that can be safely followed as models in the learners own speech and writing.
Collins COBUILD dictionaries and myVocab share the common goal of helping learners understand and use vocabulary effectively and accurately in their daily lives.
