ELA CAHSEE Boot Camp Week 3 Word Analysis-Multiple Choice Strategies and Introduction to Reading Comprehension Strategies
Standards: 10RW1.1 Identify and use the literal and figurative meanings of words and understand word derivations. [5 questions] 10RW1.2 Distinguish between the denotative and connotative meanings of words and interpret the connotative power of words. [2 questions] 10RC2.8 Evaluate the credibility of an author’s argument or defense of a claim by critiquing the relationship between generalizations and evidence, the comprehensiveness of evidence, and the way in which the author’s intent affects the structure and tone of the text (e.g., in professional journals, editorials, political speeches, primary source material). [5 questions] 10RC2.4 Synthesize the content from several sources or works by a single author dealing with a single issue; paraphrase the ideas and connect them to other sources and related topics to demonstrate comprehension. [3 questions] 10RC2.5 Extend ideas presented in primary or secondary sources through original analysis, evaluation, and elaboration. [3 questions]
(Review)Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words Prefix-a word part that can be added to the beginning of a word to make a new word. (dis) Root Word-the word that’s left over when prefixes and suffixes have been removed. (infect) Suffix-a word part that can be added to the end of a word to make a new word. (ant) Dis-infect-ant=Disinfectant
(Review)Common Prefixes and Suffixes PREFIXES SUFFIXES Re= back, again * able ible= able to Sub= under * fy= to make Un= not * ism= the practice of Trans= across, * less= without, lacking beyond * semi= half, partly * ness= quality of
(Review)How will this help you on the CAHSEE? Word analysis skills are very important for the CAHSEE because they will help you decode the meaning and context of words within reading passages and also in the questions you are being asked.

(Review)What are context clues? Context clues are words in a sentence or paragraph that help the reader figure out the meaning of an unfamiliar word.
(Review)Types of Context Clues Synonym clue- figuring out the meaning of the unfamiliar word by replacing it with the familiar word. Comparison clue- comparing an unfamiliar word to a familiar word Contrast clue- an unfamiliar word may be used in contrast (differences) to a familiar word Explanation clue- an unfamiliar word may be followed with an explanation using familiar words.
Word Analysis-Multiple Choice Strategies Strategy A: Don’t look at the choices until the end. 1.Cover the answer choices with your hand. 2.Go back to the passage to determine how the word is used in context. (Note: These clues may appear in the same sentence or in the sentence/s before and/or after the word.) 3.Underline clue words. 4.Before looking at the answer choices, write what you think the word means. (What word would fit in the context?) 5.Examine the choices. Eliminate answer choices that are very different from your word. Pick the answer choice that most closely matches your word.
Strategy A-Large Group Practice Activity Part I. Example: Tragically, many tropical rain forests are so threatened by overdevelopment that they may be completely eradicated by the end of the century. (Write only the example and the correct answer). 1.Cover the answer choices with your hand. 2.Look at the passage to see how the word is used in context. 3.Underline clue words in the sentence. 4.Write in a word that would fit the context. _______________ 5.Now look at the answer choices. Cross out all answer choices that are not synonymous with your word. A.isolated B. destroyedC. rejuvenatedD. expanded
Strategy A-Part I. Answer B-Eradicated=Destroyed Why?-Provide context clues to justify the answer
Word Analysis-Multiple Choice Strategies Strategy B: Try out each choice in the original sentence. 1.Read the sentence or paragraph in which the word appears. 2.When you get to word in question, cover it with your hand. 3.Substitute each of the answer choices for the word you have covered and read the sentence. 4.Ask yourself, “Does this word make sense in the sentence?” 5.Cross out those words that do not fit and choose the word that makes the most sense in the sentence.
Strategy B-Large Group Practice Activity Part II. Example: But in captivity, when their keepers unknowingly were giving them leaves contaminated with acid, the koalas were left with only two options: eat the poisonous leaves or starve. (Write only the example and the correct answer). 1.Read the entire sentence. 2.Cover the word “contaminated” with your hand. 3.Substitute each of the choices and read the sentence. 4.Ask yourself, “Does this word make sense in the sentence?” 5.Cross out choices that do not make sense and choose the word that makes the most sense in the sentence. A.carried with B.polished with C.poisoned with D.grown from
Strategy B-Part II. Answer C-Poisoned with=Contaminated Why? Provide context clues to justify the answer
Introduction to Reading Comprehension On the CAHSEE you will be given several passages to read, followed by a series of multiple-choice questions that test your understanding of the text. There are a total of 38 reading comprehension questions on the CAHSEE: 18 questions based on informational (factual) text and 20 questions based on literary text (i.e. poems, plays, short stories, and memoir).
Reading Strategies for the CAHSEE There are five distinct types of questions on the CAHSEE: Right There!-We are learning about this skill today!! In Other Words... Up Here! What’s the Big Idea? Read All!
Reading Comp Strategy#1- Right There! Skim & Scan for a particular fact & look for an answer in the same words as the text. Scanning-involves moving your eyes quickly down the page, seeking specific words and phrases. Skimming-moving your eyes quickly down the page and focusing on any titles, headings, sub-headings, and text in bold.
