How to Use the Vocabulary Finder
Note: This is a ClassHook Premium feature.
ClassHook’s Vocabulary Finder makes it easy to find videos that contain and mention the vocabulary words that you would like to define for your students.
From the dashboard at the top, click on Browse. From the drop down menu, click on Vocabulary Finder.
On the Vocabulary Finder, type in a vocabulary word to start your search.
Once you enter a word, the Vocabulary Finder will search through ClassHook for clips containing that word and provide a set of clips for you to choose. The search results will display a variety of videos on the screen.
Special Features of the Vocabulary Finder
On each video, under the grade levels and tags, a timestamp of when your vocabulary word is mentioned during the dialogue between the characters in the clip. Use the timestamp to quickly navigate to the vocabulary word in the clip. (Circled in orange on the example below)
Under each timestamp, a short quote with the vocabulary word in bold shows how the vocabulary word is used in the clip. You can use these quotes to determine whether the clip fits the needs of your lesson plan before screening the video. Truly a time saver!
