Anyone that reads extensively has run into a situation where the author uses an unfamiliar word. While e-readers make it easy to select and look up new words, in many cases, its definition can be derived through context. This collection of activity sheets will teach your students how to parse sentences and find corroborating information in order to define unknown words. Answer keys have been provided for each activity sheet for the instructor.
Project idea: Have your students make up their own adjectives and use them in a sentence, providing enough context for a reader to define the made-up word.
