Using contextual clues in reading

What we did in class, today – Using the .pdf file Reading in Context, I discussed how we can use contextual clues to figure out the meanings of unfamiliar words that we encounter in reading texts. Then, students completed an on-line quiz (available in MyGUST) to use this reading technique.

Congratulations to the following students for reading extra articles this week:

  • Section 6 – Alaa, 11; Bashayer, 11; Dhoha, 6: Halah, 6; Iptisam, 21; Janaat, 11; Khaledah, 10; Khaloud, 5; Mariam, 11; Noura, 6; Sara, 8; sara, 4; Shaikha, 23; Thuraya, 8
