This context clues worksheet on the noun hallmark was one of the first of these exercises I composed. Student in a freshman global studies class I was co-teaching were reading about river valley civilizations, and the locution “hallmark of civilization” recurred in the textbook we were using. Finally, one plucky ninth-grader stood up and said “We have a Hallmark store in my neighborhood.”
So I knew I needed this worksheet.
