Reading Cuisine: Connotation

This Reading Cuisine: Connotation lesson plan also includes:

Define denotation and connotation for your class and read "Chocolate Cake" from Fatherhood by Bill Cosby (or look online for an audio clip). Class discussion about diction inspires playful rewriting of the text. Learners sort words with negative and positive connotations. Finally, large class groups revise the school lunch menu to have either positive or negative connotations.
