However, teachers should go over the directions with the students to make sure students understand the task at hand. In fact, despite there being a full answer key for teachers, it is recommended that teachers complete the packet without the answer key, to have a sincere sense of the information disseminated and skills targeted. Since comprehension of directions is critical to second language learning, the directions are repeated and designed to familiarize students with directional terms used in many content area classes and tests. The directional terms used include: Fill in Circle List Unscramble Match Rewrite Note underlined words Read If students are unfamiliar with word games, please initiate the word games as a group activity.
