Reflection: Student Self-Assessment The artist was "imperturbable" when he painted the "idyll" scene....??? - Section 4: Closing the Loop


With this context clue activity, it’s important to ask students to explain how they arrived at their answers. I find that students do better with words that are unfamiliar but have strong context clues (e.g. trepidation, with clues “walked slowly” and “dark”). They often miss on familiar words with multiple meanings or words used figuratively (e.g. priceless) because they don’t take the time to identify context clues to the words meanings.

In this video a student shares her reasoning for each of her responses.
