PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will learn the four main strategies that writers use to give context clues to their readers (telling, examples, antonyms, and picture-painting).

Context clues are so important; they are part of the Common Core Standards in grades TWO through TWELVE!

This lesson focuses on grades 6 through 8.

This product includes:
---An EATS Lesson plan (with activating strategy, teaching strategies, etc.)
---A complete PowerPoint for this lesson
---Two worksheets
---Two activities
---A PowerPoint of printable task cards (8)- perfect for differentiated instruction

The lesson gives the definition for context and shows examples. A sample sentence without context clues is also shown. Students will be given an original picture of "clues" as a PowerPoint visual to connect with this concept.

As a class, students will practice with the examples on the PowerPoint- identifying which strategy the writer used. Later, students will pair up and work on TASK CARD examples (perfect for differentiating this lesson- or use them as homework slips!).

Finally, students will work independently on a worksheet and create a context clue-filled sentence of their own for their peers to critique. Most of the students' unknown words come from my "Word of the Day: Preparing for the S.A.T." So, if they accidentally learn the meaning, it's a win!! :)

This lesson has a lot of information and several strategies for students to learn.

The second PowerPoint (the one with task cards) is intended to be printed.

This lesson focuses on: CCSS Literacy .L.6.4.a, 7.4.a, and 8-12.4.a.

Thank you so much!
