ry these websites you will love them for your classroom:
Vocab Grabber is a new feature from the people who created The Visual Thesaurus.“…it intelligently extracts key vocabulary from any text you’re interested in, allowing you to sort, filter, and save the most relevant vocab words.” See http://www.visualthesaurus.com/vocabgrabber/
This website performs a similar function as Vocab Grabber but also will select words from the academic word list from a text that you enter. Don't let the simple landing page from WordSift fool you — sites that enable users to visualize text have great classroom applications. View the demo to watch two wonderful applications of WordSift technology for the classroom. See http://www.wordsift.com
