The ability to examine words within text is important for students to develop vocabulary skills. To do this, students learn to examine text to look for context clues to assist in determining meaning.
To utilize these materials in a classroom, students will receive a copy of student guided notes. Students will learn about four different types of context clues that can appear in text. Context Clues written as a synonym, antonym, example or general type of context clue. Students learn how to identify these types by examining an author’s word choice, looking for clue words, and by examining punctuation use. Utilizing a graphic organizer, students then use this knowledge to help examine text to define unknown words. At the end of each lesson students then complete a Ticket Out the Door to assess their knowledge.
Provided to wrap up your study of context clues is lesson 4. Here students apply their knowledge of context clues to analyze and answer thought questions. A rubric has been provided to utilize for assessing the quality of students' written responses.
