This unit includes 4 vocabulary units featuring excerpts from Maya Angelou's beloved book. Each assignment includes 15 excerpts where students A) guess a word's definition using context, B) write the correct definition, C) use the word correctly in a sentence, and D) illustrate a vocabulary word using no text. Teachers assign each student a word to illustrate; multiples are voted on, and "winners" are posted to aid students during the quiz.
Each unit has 2 quiz options, which can be differentiated 3 ways: 1) matching, 2) matching with sentence usage, and 3) write-in definitions with sentence usage. Vocabulary posters are to be displayed to aid during the test, causing better retention of these new words.
