Product Description
Your students will read six stories related to Halloween. To answer the seventeen multiple choice questions, they will need to use context clues to decipher the meaning of a word. Words include: specter, domicile, predilection, penchant, loathe, intrepid, eschew, foiled, abashed, copious, tepid, abashed, culled, obstreperous, and emanating.

I created this because I have found that not only my ELL's, but the vast majority of students at my school struggle with this type of question on multiple choice tests.

Most of the questions are:
Which word or phrase means about the same as _____ as it is used in this passage?

The remaining questions are:
Which word or phrase most helps the reader determine the meaning of _______?

This worksheet can be printed back-to-back. An answer key is included.
