TIP stands for Term – Info – Picture. Detailed in my first book and in much of my PD, here is some of the reasoning for it:
a. Students need multiple exposures to really master new vocabulary words – some researchers say that it’s around six exposures over a period of time. The TIP here is also on the wall, and we build as we go. Sounds like: “Denominator – that’s a new word, let’s add that to our TIP!” We add ONE word at a time, not a group. We give each word attention.
b. A picture with a word is one of the most effective ways to help learners get a word. On our big chart we can create a class pic – on their own chart, they can make an individual one.
c. Vocabulary is best learned via conversational definitions. So the info piece is in kid-friendly terms.
So, students have this handy reference piece as they take this journey. Can’t remember a word? Check your TIP!
