This is a step-by-step powerpoint designed to introduce the 5 types of context clues to students. Each type of context clue is presented on its own slide, and contains a definition, and an example using the word "cacophony" in a sentence. Then, there are six "practice slides", where students get to use context clues to determine the meaning of difficult "phobia" words.
UPDATE!! 4/27/13- I just added 14 more slides with test prep questions!! If you already purchased this, be sure to download this revised version!
(The slides are animated so that the answers to the questions do not appear until after the teacher clicks, indicating the class is ready to see the answer.)
The types of context clues presented include:
SYNONYM OR RESTATEMENT
ANTONYM OR CONTRAST
