This vocabulary sheet can be used when studying a new novel. Teachers can assign the list beforehand for students to look out for, do it as a class as they come across new words, or assign the sheet in literature circles. I like to use it because it helps the students find the evidence in the text, not just guess at the word meaning.
I stress the importance of inferred meaning, rather than just looking up a definition in the dictionary first.
My students use the dictionary definition column to see how close they came to the actual definition with their inference.
