Story Map Outlining Using Context Clues "An electorate is a body of people entitled to vote." Definition Comparison "The children clamored for their snacks, like baby birds for worms." Analogy "As sunlight is to flowers, so compassion is to the unfortunate." Connotation "Shea and Warren often quibbled over where to eat dinner, but their disagreements were never heated." Technical Terms "Computer hardware includes circuit boards, chips, wires, disk drives, keyboard, monitors, and so on." Using Prefixes, Roots,
and Suffixes Prefixes "Connect" means "to join or link."
The prefix re- means "again."
"Reconnect" means "to join or link again." Roots The root is the foundation on which a word is built. The root carries the word's core meaning, and it is the part to which prefixes and suffixes are added. For example, the root of "reconnect" is "connect." Suffixes "Active" means "lively."

A Definition 1

KWL Chart Summary A summary captures the main points of a story or another text, boiling it down to a few sentences. When you summarize, you use your own words to briefly state the main ideas and key details of the text. Plot Summary When referring to fiction, such as novels or short stories, we use the term "plot summary" to describe the condensed version of the text's actions. The "gist," or the main idea, is the most important point an author wants to make. It's the overall message being presented. Each paragraph or section can have its own main idea as well. Supporting Details facts and figures sensory details these details answer questions such as Who? What? When? Where? Why? and How? Newspaper stories and magazine articles often use facts and figures to clarify a main idea. Sensory details tell how something looks, sounds, feels, smells, or tastes.

A overrun against her will
