Product Description
The purpose of this unit is to help students develop and strengthen their vocabulary skills. This unit specifically focuses on semantic gradients, or recognizing shades of meaning between closely related synonyms and antonyms. The concept of semantic gradient is adapted from the work of Reading Rockets (“Semantic Gradients” n.d.). Please see the link provided below for more information.

This unit provides you with materials to introduce the concept of semantic gradients, to practice gradients using synonyms (a more complex task) and antonyms. You are provided with templates and visuals to help guide the lessons and group discussions. Understand that these activities may require significant supports from the educator, especially when completing with students with language impairment. The goal of this lesson is to increase semantic flexibility. We are encouraging students to think about word relationships and word intensity (not an easy task for many students). I think you will find that with the right motivators, these activities can be quite fun however!
