This activity has 55 vocabulary terms (words and phrases) found in the text of “The Birthmark” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Can be assigned before or during reading the text. Also works well to jigsaw as a class for reference during reading.
This vocabulary activity is best assigned prior to reading. Completing the terms before reading allows students to have the terms for reference as they are reading, increasing understanding of the text. Students will need to write their definitions on a separate sheet. Recommended that students write the term clearly to easily find it for an effective readers’ reference—this may include highlighting or having the term separate from the definition (no text above or below)
Answer Key included.
