Context Clues – New Content on BrainPOP

Posted by Andrew Gardner on

We’re excited to announce the debut of yet another BrainPOP topic that can help explain a popular reading strategy, Context Clues. In this BrainPOP movie, Tim explains how to use context clues to figure out unfamiliar words. Watch and learn how to look for synonyms of the unfamiliar word in surrounding sentences, or find antonyms that’ll help you define the word by its opposite. Finally, learn to keep an eye out for false cognates–tricky words that sound like other words, but have completely different meanings!
