Prezi is similar to a power point presentation, but better in so many ways. This prezi teaches students how to use context clues to figure out the meaning of words within text, focusing on the LPR3 method, the 4 ways to guess, and the 4 context clues.
*56 slide prezi
*Worksheet that follows the prezi - 4 pages
I have used this lesson with 7th and 8th grade students, both mild/moderate sped. and general education students. The visuals, video clip, and more interactive presentation make this lesson more accessible for a variety of learners, hitting many modalities. I have 49 minute periods and used 1 period for this lesson with my general education and mild sped students. My moderate sped students needed 2 1/2 periods. This lesson would also be appropriate for 4th and 8th grade students and possibly 9th grade sped students.
The activity and the end of the lesson: I suggest modeling how to do this and then giving for homework or else you may go into an extra period to teach context clues.
I hope this helps your students become context clue experts!!
**This is a zip file, so you will need to know how to unzip. I have a free download on how to do this and tpt also provides instructions on how to unzip. If you are using a PC, getting the prezi downloaded may take several minutes, so please be patient. If you are on a mac it is almost instantaneous.
