Unit 8: English/Spanish Cognates (for Spanish-speaking ELLs)
This unit teaches Spanish-speaking ELLs the Cognates Strategy. (Cognates are words from two languages that have a similar spelling, pronunciation, and meaning.) Students learn to leverage their knowledge of Spanish to infer the meanings of unknown words they encounter in English. The unit contains three games, each progressively more challenging.
