Product Description
This two-page activity will allow students to better understand the importance of word selection in writing compositions. Before completing this activity, students should have some familiarity with denotation and connotation. The word table contains six 5-word synonym groups. Teachers can assign a particular word group to each student or split the class into six groups and assign each group one word list. As students complete the question sheet, they will better understand how important word choice is in influencing our readers’ perceptions as they respond to our writing. This concept can be reinforced as students or groups share their responses with the class.
