Should Dictionary Skills Still be Taught?

Yes! Dictionary skills are still important for your students to learn. Despite the prevalence of digital devices and search engines, there are many situations where a physical dictionary may still be the best resource for finding information. Additionally, using a dictionary can help students to develop their vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension skills.

Using guide words in a dictionary can be particularly useful for students who need to look up multiple words or are working on a research project.
