logoAll year long we have focused on finding the meaning of complex vocabulary by using context clues. This is a key skill for students as they prepare for the ACT Aspire. Students will be expected to read a passage and determine the meaning of complex vocabulary words. Students will often have to choose a word that is synonymous with the given word to demonstrate their understanding.

This video lesson is a good one. It walks the student through what it means to use context clues.

The following link takes you to a number of other context clue resources:
