Also with the iPad, I highlighted all of the difficult words from the first paragraph of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado," and as a class, clicked on the words to bring up the definition. I had photocopied the first paragraph of the story for the students, and as we used the ipad to look up definition, students were able to write those definitions down on their printout. Then we reread the passage using the definitions. This was a new way to solve an old problem: vocabulary in context. If you tell the students to look up a word in a dictionary, they groan, or don't bother, or both; when they were able to click on the word and have the definition pop-up, the technology won them over and suddently vocabulary was "cool."
