How have you used the OED in your lessons?

We would love to know how you have used the Oxford English Dictionary in classroom activities.

These activities might cover topics like:

  • Etymology
  • Using the synonym function to improve vocabulary
  • Using the OED as part of revision, or to help with exams
  • Using the OED in a research project, or essay
  • Pronunciation
  • Using the OED properly
  • How words are added to the OED
  • Anything students have requested help with

You might choose to post lesson plans, worksheets, games, and various other resources you have used. Or you might want to ask for inspiration on how to incorporate a certain topic into your lessons.

We are giving free OED access to all public schools in the UK, US and Canada who are not already subscribed. You can find more information here.
