Have students practice determining the meaning of words by using context while teaching The Giver by Lois Lowry
INCLUDED IN YOUR PURCHASE
• A Powerpoint presentation explaining to students how to determine the meaning of an unknown word using context (using synonyms, antonyms, examples, general meaning)
• A Giver Vocabulary Booklet for students with quotes from the novel that use challenging vocabulary. Students use context to determine the meaning of the bolded word. There is also a place for the actual definition to be inserted where students can look up the words, or you can go over them as a class
• A 38 Slide Powerpoint presentation to go over each of the vocabulary words with synonyms/definitions for students to easily understand the new terms
