Teach your students “how to” use context clues. The unit comes complete with a suggested goal, a rubric, and student checklist for easy progress monitoring. A lesson plan and nine, 30 minute activities are also included. That’s one lesson for each week of the marking period! This method of teaching and data collection will allow you and your students to determine which strategies are most helpful, in turn creating a clear, and individualized picture for them on “how to” learn language.
Use this unit to gather information regarding “how much your students already know” about context clues via the use of the Pre-test. Next, teach students about using context clues to figure out the meaning of unknown vocabulary using the teaching tool. Additional lessons include worksheets, task cards and a board game. Wrap up the unit with a Post-Test, and review and discussion regarding the use of context clues. Please visit my store for additional language-based learning strategies. Created by: High-Heel Speechie
