It’s Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day today, so here is a context clues worksheet on the adjective exemplary. It means, variously, “serving as a pattern,” “deserving imitation,” commendable,” “deserving imitation because of excellence,” “serving as a warning,” and “serving as an example, instance, or illustration.”
While this adjective can’t be characterized as a high-frequency word, a cousin of it, the noun example, can be characterized that way. What’s more, exemplar is a nice solid noun students would undeniably benefit from understanding and being able to use in expository prose.
