81 Friday Question of the Day How can a focus on the future help us imagine new possibilities?

82 Today we will learn about: Build Concept Vocabulary Compare and Contrast Flashback Context Clues Grammar: Subject-Verb Agreement Spelling: Words with the Schwa Dictionary/Glossary Future Homes

83 Compare and Contrast When you compare and contrast, you tell how two or more things are alike or different. Sometimes authors use similes and metaphors to make comparisons. Similes use the clue words like, as, or than.

84 Compare and Contrast Metaphors do not use clue words. Words such as unlike, but, and however can show contrasts. Ask questions while reading to compare and contrast, such as “How are these two characters alike and different?” or “What does this situation remind me of?”

85 Flashback A flashback is an interruption in the narrative order to show an event that happened earlier. An author can use a flashback to give background on a character and event or to show how a past event influenced a character.

86 Flashback Movies and television use flashbacks effectively, often with visual clues to let the view know a flashback has occurred. Novels and many other stories use flashbacks, often with little introduction. The reader must often look for clues such as verb tense and setting details.

87 Context Clues An unfamiliar word’s context, the words and phrases around the word, can help determine the word’s meaning. List unfamiliar words from “Good-bye to the Moon” in a chart. List any context clues that help determine the meaning of the word. Check your definitions in a dictionary.

88 Context Clues

89 Where might you find information about the word lunar? A dictionary is a book of words and their meanings. A glossary is a short dictionary at the back of some books. It includes definitions of words used in the book.

90 Dictionary/Glossary Both dictionaries and glossaries are organized alphabetically. An entry word is the word that is being defined. It is usually in dark type and broken into syllables. It shows how the word is spelled and whether it should be capitalized.

91 Dictionary/Glossary Following the entry word are its pronunciation, part of speech, definitions, illustrative phrases or sentences that show how the word may be used, and inflected forms of the word when endings are added.

92 Dictionary/Glossary Guide words are words in dark type at the top of each page. They indicate the first and last words on the page.
