Hamlet Vocabulary Resource was designed to help students learn new vocabulary in Hamlet by William Shakespeare by using context clues. Instead of simply providing a vocabulary list with definitions, this resource helps students hone their skills in using context clues to determine the meaning of new words as they are used within the play. This resource includes a vocabulary booklet organized by the five acts where students read the new word in a quote from the play and infer its meaning. Then, they look up the definition to see if they were correct. Presentation slides are included for easy class review or grading.

Included in the Hamlet Vocabulary Resource:

➡️ Hamlet Vocabulary Booklet: Each of the five booklet pages includes quotes from the play that use a challenging word. Students must use context clues to determine the meaning of the bolded word. After students have made their guesses, they determine the definition of the vocabulary term and add it to the assignment.

➡️ Hamlet Context Clues Slides: Teach students different strategies that they can use to determine the meaning of challenging vocabulary in context with these ready-to-use presentation slides. Students will learn strategies like using synonyms and antonyms, looking for examples, determining parts of speech, and much more!

➡️ Hamlet Vocabulary Definitions Presentation: After students have completed the assignment, use this PowerPoint presentation to review the definitions of each of the vocabulary terms with students. Each slide includes quotes from the play and easy-to-understand definitions.

How to Use This Hamlet Vocabulary Resource:
Start by teaching students about the different strategies they can use to determine the meaning of new vocabulary. This Hamlet vocabulary resource is organized by the following acts:
  • Act 1
  • Act 2
  • Act 3
  • Act 4
  • Act 5
After students have read that act, you will have them complete the relevant vocabulary assignment by getting them to use context clues to determine the definition of the term in each of the quotes.

Once students have made their inferences, have them look up the correct definitions or use the included presentation to review the meanings of the words with students.
