Ambiguous Sentences

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through May 31st, 2024. Join today!


Students will analyze several sentences, searching for different ways the sentences could be interpreted. Then they will create their own ambiguous sentence.


  1. I model how one sentence can have multiple meanings, then students analyze, "We watched her duck."
  2. After sharing my answers from the last video, students tackle three more ambiguous sentences.
  3. Finally, students will create their own ambiguous sentence, using a homograph as their starting point.


The registration window closes on May 31st, 2024
