Our Context Clues in Sentences lesson plan teaches students strategies for determining the meaning of a word or phrase using context clues. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner and discuss the meaning of given phrases as they are used in given passages and then discuss the meaning with their class, demonstrating their ability to use context to inform their understanding of the meaning of a word or phrase. Students are also asked to use a clue to guess the meaning of the made-up words and tell which in a list of given clues helped them determine the meaning.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
