AbstractTraditionally, the dictionary in the classroom has been too often the arbiter of "correct" spellings and "correct" meaning for students. The perception, however, of the dictionary should be that of a depository of current language usage. This teaching module has as its major premise the belief that dictionary study, and its complement, vocabulary development, should provide the student with a dynamic reflection of the energy of our English language. -- As it is the responsibility of the teacher to provide his students with a word consciousness, the provincial curriculum should reflect a such a desired outcome. Though there are teaching modules on the dictionary focusing on American English usage, there has been very little developed concentrating on Canadian English usage, and more specifically on the uniqueness of our own Newfoundland English. Emphasis is placed in the module on the teacher as a facilitator of learning, not merely as a dispenser of information.
