There is a massive new impetus on learning and retaining vocab as part of the new GCSE spec. We're following Edexcel. Has anyone changed their approach to teaching or ways in which the students learn vocab? We are using Vocab Express and setting weekly assignments that are then tested in class the following week. But they don't seem to retain the words and just complete the task as a HW task no as not to get a detention. So retention and application is not great. Would be great to hear of any other ways people are teaching/getting students to learn and retain.
