Product Description
This two page worksheet takes students through a mini lesson about context clues using "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. Then, students use context clues to figure out the meaning of unknown words in the poem. Lastly, students choose their own unfamiliar words in the poem and use context clues to figure out their meaning. This activity was originally used for 7th grade language arts learning about the challenging concept of context clues, and would be great for any middle grades class reading "The Highwayman" or learning about context clues.
