Academic Word Power helps students master the 560 most common words used in academic texts, as chosen from the respected Academic Word List. When students add this vocabulary to what they learn in a beginning ESL course, they will be able to comprehend 90% of the terms in texts across disciplines. Focusing on the most common words motivates students and allows instructors to take the guesswork out of choosing and researching vocabulary, allowing more time to teach. Rather than refer specifically to ESL students, the texts appeal to both native and non-native speakers and can be used ESL, Developmental English, and high school English programs.

The sequence of texts takes into consideration frequency of words, level of difficulty, and thematic relationships, allowing intermediate through high-advanced students to learn vocabulary gradually. Each volume contains 7 units of 20 words, which are divided into four lessons of five words. Every lesson begins with an author-generated reading that includes all the focus words included in that lesson to help students learn terms in context.

  • The variety of exercises, activities, and vocabulary strategies prepare students for success in future academic reading.
  • Interactive speaking activities appeal to students by developing a link between the focus word and their experience and knowledge, increasing retention.
  • Exercises focusing on word families help students decipher new terms and build spelling proficiency
