Professor Word is an amazing (free) tool which can identify SAT & ACT vocabulary words on any webpage. I first learned about this tool on FreeTech4Teachers.com and highly recommend that all students download this tool to help with both test preparation and reading comprehension, in general. What a great way to learn new vocabulary words while surfing the web!
Richard Byrne – founder of FreeTech4Teachers.com – explains:
Professor Word is a promising new service that should help students learn new SAT and ACT vocabulary words. Professor Word operates as a browser bookmarklet in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. When you’re reading a webpage, click on the bookmarklet to quickly identify SAT and ACT vocabulary words on that page. You can also use Professor Word to get definitions for any unfamiliar word on a webpage. To get a definition just highlight the word a small dialogue box containing the definition will appear.By Laurie Gross, Educational Consultant and Executive Director
