Product Description
Here is a 2-page handout to be used in conjunction with New York State's 5th Grade ELA Module 3A Unit 3 LESSON 4. After a close read of an article on Althea Gibson and an article on Roberto Clemente, students re-read to identify the connotations of high-impact vocabulary terms by noting the context of each term and the feeling/mood that each term suggests. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to strengthen their vocabulary skills and use of context clues by identifying whether a term seems to suggest a "bad" or "good" feeling/mood. Teacher-led discussion via close reading will have students describe why they felt a word had a positive/good or negative/bad connotation. This is a very student-friendly activity with an easy-to-use table to complete by simply checking off good or bad connotation.


***THE TWO ARTICLES ARE FEATURED IN THE NY STATE MODULE 3A UNIT 3. THEY CAN BE DOWNLOADED OFF THE INTERNET AT: http://www.punctuationmadesimple.com/files/Althea_Gibson.doc
