Product Description
This lesson is a great way to reinforce the strategies used when determining word meaning in context. It is appropriate for both upper middle and high school level students and is particularly interesting to most boys. The lesson provides students with an engaging article to practice their skills and provides teachers with ready explanations of the words and modeling of the skills. Students will broaden their referential knowledge, work collaboratively, critically read, determine context clues, examine author’s craft, draw inferences and conclusions about the text, and synthesize the entire lesson to discuss author’s argument while using their newly learned vocabulary. The lesson is fully explained with step-by-step instructions, includes a guiding powerpoint and an answer key. Links to level appropriate background information are provided. Not only will your students practice a critical skill, they will also engage critically with both the topic and the author's craft.
