UIL Dictionary Skills

UIL Dictionary Skills

Coach: Wendy Rebecek

Contestants use dictionaries during the competition to answer questions about word origins and histories, parts of speech, pronunciation, variant spellings, plurals, alphabetizing and other such elements. Test questions are also taken from charts, tables and lists contained in the dictionary.

I will provide opportunities with practice tests, flash cards, and access to a website for practicing skills and tests. The ability to locate information in a dictionary is important for this event. 

Three contestants and one alternate from each grade will be chosen, based on practice scores.

Practices will begin in October.
