These worksheets go along with Chapter 4 of The City of Ember. Unlike many other vocabulary worksheets, these pages encourage the student to move beyond memorizing definitions. The student will first learn the definition. Then he/she will move to a higher level of thinking by recognizing vocabulary words in context in a mini-biography passage about the author. The student will then practice answering several types of test questions, including reading comprehension; True/False; Analogies; and Inference. The last challenge worksheet asks the student to think about the vocabulary words in various contexts by exploring and analyzing shades of meaning.
