Sometimes, students do not understand all of the words in a text. Instead of looking up each word in a dictionary, students can use the context clues. Occasionally, students may think they know the word, but are not sure. Again, they can use context clues to assure themselves of the definition of the word. In this quiz, students will determine the meaning of the word based on the context clues.
