PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As students advance in the rigor of their understanding of semantics and word study, it is important for them to be able to identify and understand more specific criteria for classifying word groups.

A common example of this is when students make the mistake of lumping all multiple-meaning words into the category of "homonyms", instead of understanding the distinction/criteria for understanding and subsequently determining if a multiple-meaning word is a homonym, heteronym, homograph, or homophone.

This resource address the three criteria for determining if a multiple-meaning word is a "true" homonym:
* the word has 2 or more meanings
* the word is spelled the same, regardless of its meaning
* the word is pronounced the same, regardless of its meaning

As students progress and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the components of our language, many academic benefits in literacy usually follow which can include:

an increase in personal vocabulary database
an improvement in standardized test scores
an improvement in writing, reading, and speaking
an improvement in comprehension

Needless to say, the benefits and importance of word study can be an awesome tool in the academic advancement of your students!

Happy Teaching!
