Do teachers still teach students how to use a dictionary or is this becoming obsolete?


I use a dictionary (book) when I write, which I keep at my side. I've heard from a few people that NO ONE uses dictionaries anymore. (obviously they are wrong b/c there is at least still one, LOL) I also make my nephew look up words and read definitions when the situation warrants it. Does anyone else use a dictionary? Is it being taught in the schools? Is this a good thing?
