Instead of ASSIGNING vocabulary, TEACH it in context! This worksheet will help students practice the essential skill of determining vocabulary in context using key passages from Chapter 1 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic The Great Gatsby.
This 2-page worksheet includes 5 key excerpts. For each, students must explain what they THINK the bold vocabulary word means (using context clues) and then explain what the word ACTUALLY means (by looking it up). At the bottom of the worksheet, there is an "Extension" activity that prompts students to explain what the passages reveal about the characters.
An answer key is included for your convenience!
