This Common Core language lesson covers how to distinguish between connotations of words with similar denotations. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will analyze sentences for context clues that suggest which of three similar words can be used in the sentence based on each word’s denotation and connotation. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of independent practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.
