A deep vocabulary is critical for good reading comprehension, higher-level writing skills, and high standardized test placement. Multiple-choice vocabulary lessons often don't give students the skills they need to figure out words in context; however, Vocabulary: A Novel Solution is a literature-based series that actively engages students in the learning process.
In each book, students begin with 25 vocabulary words (taken from the literature) that they're likely to encounter in other contexts. Before reading the book, students take a pretest and record the results in 'Word Logs,' which require figuring out meanings from context, using a dictionary, and other reading skills. Students will also study the root words, prefixes, and suffixes of each new word. A variety of reinforcement activities are included; students conclude with a post-test.
This workbook is designed be used alongside the book 'The Contender' by Robert Lipsyte, which is not included and must be obtained separately. Designed for grades 6-12; parents may wish to evaluate the literature for content for younger students as many of the texts in this series are assigned in high school.
