Today’s Learning Goal— Periods 1 & 6 I will identify the characteristics of word analysis questions and learn how words are formed in order to analyze common word parts by completing sections of my Word Analysis Packet.
Today’s Learning Goal—Period 3 I will be able to identify common word roots, prefixes, and suffixes by completing the worksheets in my word analysis packet and I will apply my creative knowledge of etymology by participating in the “Harry Potter Challenge.”
Testing Strategies for the Word Analysis Strand Activate Prior Knowledge – Have you heard the word before? – What does the word make you think of? Context Clues (Denotative vs. Connotative) – Denotative = Dictionary Definition – Connotative = Definition changes with context Positive, Negative, or Neutral – Does the surrounding context make the word sound like it has a positive, negative, or neutral meaning? Thumb-Over – Place your thumb over the word and try and replace the word with one of your own before guessing
The Harry Potter Challenge You will be provided a list of word roots, prefixes, and suffixes. You will create your own spells for a wizard duel. Example: – Impedimenta —spell to trip, freeze, bind, or knock someone backward. – Roots— “Ped”= foot/feet. Latin “impedimentum” and “impedire” meaning to “shackle the feet”
Instructions: “Harry Potter Challenge” Work to come up with at least 5 spells (these will be turned in at the end of class) When time, each person will write their BEST spell on a single sheet of paper that includes – Spell’s Name – Description of spell’s purpose/effects Sides of the classroom will compete in the duel by physically hurling spells at their opposite opponents When time called, each side will read the spells they’ve suffered.
Exit Reflection In a brief paragraph, describe ONE testing strategy that can help you with the word analysis strand on the CAHSEE.
Exit Reflection Choose one word from the word study worksheets we completed today and break down its definition by word parts. Write out the word and circle its parts In a complete sentence, explain how its definition is representative of its parts.
