Professor Word

It has been almost a year since I have posted to this blog and now I have so many great resources to share that I have to get back to blogging!

The first resource is the Professor Word site. This site can help students improve their vocabulary and is geared toward ACT/SAT prep. It is also FREE and SO EASY to use. You just go to www.professorword.com and drag a “bookmarklet” to the shortcut bar. There is a 1 minute video on the site to show you exactly how to do this on a computer or iPad. Then whenever you go to a website Professor Word automatically highlights all the SAT/ACT words found on the page. You then click on the word or any other word on the page to get a definition. If you print the page all of the words you clicked and viewed will print as footnotes. Eventually students and teachers will be able to sign up for free accounts to save the words but right now this is a great tool as it is.
