A context clue is any word or words around the unfamiliar word that might help you determine its meaning.
First, read the words around the unfamiliar word. Sometimes the author tells you what the word means in the context around a word.
Second, reread the sentence before the sentence with the unfamiliar word to see if there are any clues there as to the meaning of the unfamiliar word.
Third, read the sentence after the sentence containing the unfamiliar word to see if there are any clues there to help you figure out its meaning.
Finally, using the words and sentences around the unfamiliar word, try that meaning in the sentence to see if it makes sense.
