IDEA # 1

  • Read your passage with your students as you typically would. Discuss the novel vocabulary words as you typically would

  • Make a list of the vocabulary words

  • Copy the passage and paste it in rewordify

  • Now read the passage again with the simpler text. When you read over a highlighted words, have the student match them to the vocabulary term it replaced

IDEA # 2

  • Copy and paste the passage in rewordify

  • Read the simpler version with your students

  • Discuss the passage as you typically would

  • Now scroll down and read the original version of the text. As you get to key vocabulary words, ask your students to define it or name a synonym. If they are unable to, you can show them the simplified version again to use as a reference.

IDEA # 3

  • Use this website as a tool for drawing inferences using context clues

  • Copy and paste the passage in rewordify

  • Read the simplified passage and treat the highlighted words as context clues

  • I like to copy the simplified passage from rewordify and paste it into a Google Doc/Word Doc so that I can have the students identify and highlight the context clues, and then use them to determine what they are referring to

I hope this post gave you some new ideas!
