Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Say What? Learning New Words with Context Clues - Section 2: Reading and Rereading


When choosing words from a text, I like to read the text we are going to use a couple of times. I read and write down any words that I think will be too difficult or words that are new to them. While I read, I decide if it is a word that they use context clues to figure out. If they will need a dictionary, I will use these words for a different lesson.
