Genre: Realistic Fiction

Realistic fiction is made up, but the characters and events are so lifelike that the story seems as if it must be true. As you read, think about what makes this story seem as if it could happen in real life.

6. In a glossary, what do you think the page numbers after the definitions mean?

They are probably where the word appears.

7. The dictionary show several definitions for the word culture. Why do you think there is only one in the glossary?

There is one definition because that is they way the word is used in the book.

8. What do you think the words in a glossary have in common?

They are probably all uncommon words used in the book.

Study Skill Dictionary/Glossary WB 279-280
  • In the dictionary, what is the purpose of the sentences that are in italics? Write a sentence that could be added to the definition cumbersome to show how it is used.

Example: The heavy coat was cumbersome.

10. Describe when you would use a glossary rather than a dictionary.

I would use a glossary when I need to find the meaning of a word used in a book that I am reading.
