Product Description
Context Clues: This is a step-by-step PowerPoint designed to introduce the 5 types of context clues to students. Each type of context clue is presented on its own slide, and contains a definition, and an example using the word "cacophony" in a sentence. Then, there are six "practice slides", where students get to use context clues to determine the meaning of difficult "phobia" words.

The last half of the PowerPoint contains 14 multiple choice practice slides. Students read the sentence or short passage, and determine the meaning of the underlined word. Words in this section include "melancholy", "inquisitive", "nonchalantly", and "liberated".

(The slides are animated so that the answers to the questions do not appear until after the teacher clicks, indicating the class is ready to see the answer.)

The types of context clues presented include:

This file also contains a 3-page PowerPoint companion handout. As you advance through the PowerPoint, students can record their answers on the handout.
