This unit introduces students to 20 vocabulary words that are frequently used in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air. The unit is comprised of a master list of words and definitions, a class-ready PowerPoint, and a culminating quiz to use for your assessment.
First, the PowerPoint: Included with each word is a slide with the part of speech, a slide with the definition, a slide with the word used correctly in a sentence, and a slide with a relevant image. Although I have had great success using this unit in conjunction with Krakauer's book, these are important words for students to study in any context (SAT prep, reading enrichment, etc.)
Secondly, the included quiz uses matching, sentence completion, and definitions to test students' knowledge of the words in the unit.
Finally, the unit also contains a one-page master list of all of the words and their definitions.
