Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Context Clues Review - Section 4: Wrap Up


In reflecting on student answers I realize that ofr some of my students the use of context clues is understood but for others review and re-teaching will probably be necessary.  Some of the student answers included:

  • Context clues are important because they give you a way to figure out words you are not sure of.
  • SAID are the 4 ways we use the clues
  • Context clues don't always work
  • I forget what SAD means
  • Should we spend a lot of time on words we don't know??
