Linear arrays are a strategy that illustrates gradation between related words. This helps the student make connections between words, see subtle distinctions between words, and realize that all words have shades of meaning. Use of linear arrays works best with vocabulary from literature text rather than informational text.
How to Use the Strategy:
5. Discuss as a group what words students used and why.
