The ability to examine words within text is important for students to develop vocabulary skills. To do this, students learn to examine text to look for context clues to assist in determining meaning.
Students will learn about four different types of context clues that can appear in text. Context Clues written as a synonym, antonym, example, or general type of context clue. Students learn how to identify these types by examining an author’s word choice, looking for clue words, and punctuation use. Utilizing a graphic organizer, students then use this knowledge to help examine text to define unknown words. At the end of each lesson students will then complete a Ticket Out the Door to assess their knowledge.
