Students were placed in partners or threes to use the task cards.
After they read the paragraph on the card, they used a recording sheet with the questions on it to help them determine the meaning of the unknown word.
The hardest part was identifying the part of speech - this is unfortunately a difficult skill for our students. Relating it to the job the word does in the sentence was especially helpful.
While other students were working in teams or three, or partners, the teacher pulled over a small group of students who struggled with this skill and coached them through using the cards to practice their context clues.
