    Shades of meaning are fun and relatively easy to teach if you start with words students know, then introduce synonyms they don’t. For example, give kids big, large, gigantic, huge, enormous, and humongous, ask them to put them in order from least big to most big, and get out of the way while they argue over whether or not gigantic is bigger. Shade is a break from the glare of the sun, like the shade of a big tree or the shade under a beach umbrella.

      Reading Fifty Shades of Grey It's a play on words. Shades of grey usually has two meanings: literally tints and tones of the color grey, and figuratively depression, boredom, neutrality, uninteresting undefinedness or old age.   Goodman ()* developed the shades-of-meaning strategy as a way to address this need and help students develop their understanding that many words can be organized in gradients of meaning. The strategy encourages students to talk about words and arrange them along a continuum.
