Three thousand carefully selected words, taken from literature, textbooks, and SAT-prep books, are the basis of this exciting series that teaches vocabulary through reading, writing, and a variety of exercises. Each fifteen-word lesson begins with a Word List. The alphabetized list of words gives parts of speech and concise definitions, and uses each word in a sentence. There are five exercises that follow in which the student constructs sentences, substitutes the precise vocabulary word for a phrase, applies their understanding of the meaning of the word to a particular situation, and answers questions on a one-page narrative to measure their comprehension of the new words.
