Active Vocabulary is designed to accompany a reading text at the second tier reading level. Readings cover both general words and academic subjects.

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.

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.
