Our Context and Word Recognition lesson plan teaches students methods for improving their reading comprehension. During this lesson, students are asked to read a passage, answer questions about it, and then use context to determine the meaning of words from the passage. Students are also asked to read short excerpts and explain their meaning using the reading comprehension techniques found in this lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to read with context and reread to improve their understanding when there is a break in comprehension. Students will have also learned strategies for using context clues to improve reading comprehension.
