A ten-word vocabulary lesson focused on the kinds of labels we attach to people.
The handout includes two pages with a list of the words, their definitions, forms and/or synonyms, pronunciation, part of speech, and space to write an example sentence. There is a page of matching for each word, followed by a story in which students must fill in the blank.
This vocab lesson was originally used to introduce the book "Stargirl" by Jerry Spinelli, which I taught in a 9th grade English class.
NOTE: My original version of this contained a copyrighted image at the top of the first page, which I removed.
