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 8 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic The Great Gatsby.
This 2-page worksheet includes key excerpts with 5 vocabulary words. For each word, students must explain what they THINK the bold vocabulary words 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" question that prompts students to critically think about the passages.
An answer key is included for your convenience!
