Product Description
These Connotation vs. Denotation Worksheets in digital interactive and print formats will enable you to teach and reinforce connotative thinking skills in a thoughtfully-structured sequence, asking students to think critically about the literal and suggestive meanings of words and phrases. As we know, close reading, as part of the Common Core, is an essential skill, and connotative thinking is a building block to success.

Close reading analysis requires students to be able to decode and make inferences about a text, including literal and suggestive meanings of words and phrases (also known as denotation vs. connotation). This resource is designed to give students practice with the following:
⇒Distinguishing between denotative and connotative meanings
⇒Unpacking a word to determine denotative and connotative meanings
⇒Drawing inferences from a text
⇒Defending an interpretation of a text
⇒Determining which details are useful for textual analysis

Whether you pick-and-choose activities, or take students through this carefully-designed sequence, the goal is for students to demonstrate understanding of purposeful diction, including literal and figurative meanings and author’s purpose. They should, as a result, become more confident and independent readers and writers.
