25 Vocabulary Strategy (P. 348)
Context Clues: Antonyms An antonym is a word that has the opposite meaning of another word. For example, cold is an antonym for hot. An author may put an antonym near a difficult word to help you discover what it means. Read the words and sentences around the unfamiliar word. Look for antonyms that show contrast with the unfamiliar word. When things are contrasted, words such as unlike, not, but, or on the other hand may signal the contrast. Give the unfamiliar word the opposite meaning of the antonym. Does this meaning make sense in the sentence? As you read “Out of Great Pain, Great Music,” check the words and sentences around any unfamiliar word. See if an antonym helps you figure out its meaning.

34 Persuasive Devices: Authors use persuasive devices, also known as propaganda, to persuade people to be for or against someone or something. It is an extreme form of biased writing. Some types of persuasive devices are bandwagon, testimonial, and loaded words. It is up to the reader to decide whether or not he or she agrees or disagrees with an author’s ideas. Point out the author’s use of persuasive devices on p. 352 when he describes the blues. Write a persuasive paragraph about the type of music they like best and why.
