Summary: Active Vocabularycovers both general words and academic subjects and is designed to accompany a reading text at the second tier reading level.

This worktext is visually appealing to students, uses words in context, and provides a variety of activities including self-tests, writing assignments, collaborative projects, and games. The chapters and exercises are ''scaffolded'' so that what has been presented in previous chapters is reinforced progressively as t morehe student moves through the book. Active Vocabulary includes a number of exercises to stimulate different learning styles as well as to encourage cross-referencing of the words through different contexts. Self-tests and games in each chapter round out the exposure for each vocabulary word. Four chapters on word parts are included, as well as three review chapters.

  • A balance of academic and general readings engages students with high-interest and everyday topics (Part One), and text is taken from popular and accessible sources covering a different academic area (Part Two).
  • A four-color visual design is used to link clues with words to improve vocabulary acquisition.
  • Vocabulary is reinforced in context as each chapter begins with a reading with the ten vocabulary words embedded in the reading.
  • Scaffolded (or progressive) readings use previously presented vocabulary words in a new context, giving students continuous contact with new words.
  • Coverage of word parts - prefixes, roots, and suffixes -- spans three chapters.
  • A brief and practical Hint box in every chapter helps students improve vocabulary, reading, and study skills.
  • Flashcards are located at the end of the book for student practice.
  • StudyWizard CD-ROM (optional) with exercises, recorded readings, and an audio pronunciation guide. less
