PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Context Detective is a vocabulary building program designed to help students become more efficient readers. Using tier-two vocabulary words, this program gives kids practice using context clues to figure out new vocabulary.

Context Detective helps students move toward better reading fluency and comprehension.

This 10-word Context Detective unit includes the following:

1. POWERPOINT PRESENTATION
• introduces the basics of using context clues to decipher the meaning of words
• provides practice in this skill by showing each vocabulary word used in context in ten sample sentences
• provides additional definitions and synonyms

2. VOCABULARY WORD CHART
• for taking notes during the PowerPoint;

3. PRACTICE ACTIVITIES
• encourage students to use the words that they have defined through context clues.
These include:
i. three creative response activities;
ii. one crossword puzzle;
iii. one nonsense word game that invites students to define imagined words through context clues;

4. BASIC QUIZ


All document files are uploaded in .pdf format. I also include an editable .docx version of the quiz. PowerPoint presentation uses the fonts Times New Roman and Courier. Your computer must have these fonts loaded to view the PowerPoint in its correct form.

These units were designed for 7th and 8th grade students in my support English class but are appropriate for all students in grades 4 - 8.
