Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Stopping By The Woods - Section 2: Guided Practice


This lesson is really focusing on using context clues to identify the meaning of words in a poem, but this skill only scratches the surface of what standard RL1.4 is about.  I feel like students need to be able to understand specific words in a text before they learn to analyze them for the tone, feelings, or emotions they suggest. So, I am starting this lesson teaching the prerequisite skill of context clues, so that we can later dig deeper into the text and make inferences.  Once we have mastered understanding the meaning of the words in poetry, we can move on to the later lessons in this unit that work at the skills of identifying the words and phrases in the poem that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
