A middle school vocabulary program for active learning
These lively and appealing workbooks, designed for active learning, are a fresh approach to learning new vocabulary. The humor- and fun-filled activities provide a memorable context for new words. Students will remain actively engaged in every lesson.
A Know-How section at the beginning of each workbook directly teaches important vocabulary strategies, such as using base words, roots, prefixes, and suffixes; context clues; and prior knowledge.
Multiple exposures to each new word are woven into each seven-step lesson with a definitional and contextual context and six varied activities for each word. A review after every five lessons helps students retain word meanings.
Teacher Guides include an extensive introduction to the program; word histories, word parts, and usage facts; and fun whole-class activities.
