Product Description
THE CONNOTATION CONTINUUM:
A SDAIE/SIOP DENOTATION/CONNOTATION LESSON FOR ENGLISH LEARNERS AND STANDARD ENGLISH LEARNERS
.
In a Middle School Setting, this Lesson is the best lesson around for teaching SHADES OF MEANING.

In a High School Setting, this lesson (which spans multiple class periods, so I suppose it is really a bundle) uses a continuum embedded with higher-order Bloom's sentence stems as a graphic organizer, and works either as a stand-alone lesson/series of lessons to teach/review the concepts of Denotation and Connotation, or (preferred) as a way of integrating these concepts into an overarching rhetoric unit involving an in-depth treatment of Pathos, Logos, and Ethos.

As a stand-alone lesson(s), it can be used with various lists of synonyms (words and phrases that share a similar denotation, but that are connotatively different) that do not necessarily have to be related to a particular text.

The lesson(s) is both extremely rigorous and heavily scaffolded to allow English Learners, Standards English Learners, RSP students, and students who are below grade level to access the curriculum. However, because of the open-ended nature of the assignment, it is also suitable for GATE students.

It is Common Core Aligned, has all four features of SDAIE/SIOP lessons for English Learners (Content, Comprehensibility, Connections, Interactions), makes use of the Four Access Strategies (Advanced Graphic Organizers, Academic Language, Instructional Conversations, Collaborative Learning), and is structured to conform to the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model. It activates students' prior knowledge. both academic and personal. Checking for understanding is incorporated throughout in the form of multiple informal and formal assessments. Best of all, students love it, and so will you.
