    I can see that these comparatively simple tools would potentially support peer review and improving first drafts of essays/summaries-I like the discovery element. It’s useful to show a controlled example in this way and I appreciate the idea of separating the task onto a new doc-though not sure that when students use their own work they will know what to pull out from the information, which might miss the “ta-da” moment.  It does seem time consuming, but so is any vocab focused lesson, so modelling tools seems the way to go.It’s clearly more evidence based than using a dictionary or dare we say it a translation tool. And has the possibility to be more subject specific than the AWL. Would definitely be worth the investment for Doc College students, if I could present it in practical (and bite size chunks).
