This is a vocabulary practice assignment. The words (incapacitated, composure, clench, petition, provocation) are defined in the word bank at the top of the page. Then there are sentences with blanks for your students to strengthen their use of context clues. Two sentences per word! An answer key is included.
All five vocabulary words are from the excerpt "A Defenseless Creature" from The Good Doctor by Neil Simon, adapted from a story by Anton Chekov.
