Each lesson in this package is designed to provide you with everything you need to teach students about word choice, from the start of the lesson to the final assessment. This model strives to hook kids so they’re primed for learning, then moves them through activities that focus on active, rather than passive learning.
There are six different lessons in this package, all designed to show students how word choice affects meaning, whether they are using description, exposition or persuasion. The package includes:
Lesson one: Tired words
Lesson two: Vivid Verbs
Lesson three: Connotation & Tone
Lesson four: Imagery
Lesson five: Figurative Language
Lesson six: Putting it All Together
BONUS: Learning Stations for Commonly Confused Words.
Each lesson begins with a hook then provides you with a slideshow to teach the concept. Next you will find options for individual and group work that require students to use what they have just learned. Most lessons come with suggestions for ways to get your students moving too. There are even digital options for each student exercise and final learning stations to review the concepts.
Answer keys, assessment options and editable rubrics are included.
