On the new SAT, AIR, and PARCC tests, students are asked to use inferencing skills to define words in context. Therefore, reading and defining words in context is more important than ever.
This vocabulary unit, made of 20 intermediate words from Outcasts United (adapted for young people), contains a student worksheet with each word used in the context of the book, an accompanying PPT that provides the context, part of speech, and definition for each word, vocabulary warm-up bellringers, and a unit quiz with an answer key.
The intermediate word list, in chronological order, includes:
The worksheet and PPT can be done as bell work over the course of a week, a lesson for an entire class period, or homework for a flipped classroom.
