A Victorian Vocabulary Challenge

Introduce your high schoolers to some tough vocabulary. No, I'm not talking about the SAT list! Revisit Victorian literature to find tricky words we still use today. Using the Visual Thesaurus, learners will preview vocabulary in a quote from Jane Eyre. Then, after sketching what they believe the quote to be about, learners split into groups to share. In these groups, they also complete the handout provided, encouraging them to use the context to determine which word fits in each sentence the best.
