I used Thesaurus.com frequently, both personally and as a teacher. When my ESL students learned new vocabulary, we would turn to the site to boost their language skills. I would frequently give them a "good, better, best" quiz to assist them in choosing the most appropriate word for a sentence. I also used Thesaurus.com when I taught third grade writing. The students would write sentences, paragraphs or stories. We would then go to a hard-copy thesaurus or to Thesaurus.com to make their stories come alive with more descriptive terms.
