US Grade 9 - 10
~ SMALL GROUP ~ I absolutely LOVE teaching context clues! Building vocabulary and word choice awareness can be fun; it is almost like detective work. Learning to master context clues is a sure way to help build vocabulary, identify connotations, and improve reading comprehension. More importantly, these skills will get you ready for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. WHAT ARE CONTEXT CLUES?

Students are expected to significantly improve vocabulary, context clue awareness and achieve growth in reading comprehension. These skills will greatly influence the performance on the vocabulary section of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and state testing.
Homework OfferedAt the end of class, students will receive a pdf of the words and slides that were shared during the lesson. The last two slides contain the optional challenge assignments. Students may send me their responses for feedback. Note, I highly recommend that the students complete these assignments. This will significantly improve their mastery of identifying context clues and will subsequently broaden their vocabulary.
Assessments Offered*** Informal & Formative assessments are a natural part of my interactive teaching style. INTERACTIVES & ASSESSMENTS - Students will be assessed in a variety of ways: ~ Through interactive in-class participation ~ Kahoot!

Students should have access to Kahoot!
