*** When a word is not in the dictionary, use the closest well known
meaning.Antonyms are thought of by the student. Synonyms
are found in the thesaurus- if not, then use what you know to be a synonym.
Merriam Webster Online is good too.
** Sentences are in compound/complex format (a subject and verb
+ "," + For, and, nor, but, or, yet, so + subject and verb) and
tell the reader of the sentence that the students can demonstrate knowledge of
the word in context. For example: John joined the picket line with the other
demonstrators, so he could protest the unfair wages of the workers in the
factory. (yes, it is a 6th grade standard, and this has been modeled many
times- amazing stuff!).
