  1. Thanks for this podcast.
    As a hearing impaired sped educator
    I had an exceptional english teacher in the 8th grade
    that taught vocabulary explicitly and
    quizzed us every Friday to make sure we as a class
    studied and learned the words.
    He also led us into spelling bees and speech meets
    which I believe are missing in special education
    but think the competition and prize rewards are something
    the students will strive for and lead them to develop better
    vocabulary.
