Dictionary -Thesaurus
.
There are many great resources that can be used on-line to find definitions, alternative words, synonyms, antonyms, and great word developments.  Sometimes, it is helpful to look at various sources for meaning, as we have a language that is constantly developing and changing.  The changes often occur faster than the printed dictionaries can track- or people can afford to update in their homes.

Students regularly work on building comprehension skills and the dictionary is a very useful tool.  The sources listed below are some that are helpful when finding information, comparing information, and determining what the real meaning an author had in mind when reading for meaning.  They are also helpful when editing our writing for stronger, more exciting stories and documents.
