The dream of many is to retire from work, and then spend the rest of their days walking around beautifully kept parks with finely cut lawns, grassy fields and playing golf. At Linden High School when students are confronted with vocabulary and concepts that are unfamiliar or misunderstood, Linden High School English teacher Mr. William McMahon reinforces the vocabulary words in a creative way, by having the students play golf.
Students are participating in a game designed to reinforce their knowledge of SAT vocabulary words. They demonstrate their mastery of the words by knowing the definition or using it in context. Then they have an opportunity to double extra points for a test by making a hole-in-one.
Through his years of experience, Mr. McMahon has learned that games help and encourage many students to sustain their interest and work. These educational games also help the teacher to create contexts in which the language is useful and meaningful. Adriana Mantilla putts for vocabulary in her English III honors class with Mr. McMahon.
