And the word of the day is…

Nocebo:

nocebo (no-SEE-bo) noun

A substance producing harmful effects in someone because it is believed to be harmful, but which in reality is harmless.

Want to expand your vocabulary by a word a day? While doing some vocabulary research, I stumbled upon Wordsmith.org. This site has a great email feature called A.Word.A.Day. You can sign up to receive a daily email that teaches you new words like nocebo or prepone.

We all know that learning vocabulary requires multiple exposures to a word within meaningful contents, so click here to learn about activities you and/or your students can do to practice vocabulary. Or, why not create a clarifying table for your new words.

Prepone your next vocabulary lesson and start learning new words today :).

    Another great site to improve your vocabulary is freerice.com. They donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program for every vocabulary word that you get right in a multiple choice game. You can get smarter and help to end world hunger at the same time!
