Description

Academic Vocabularysupplements a reading text at the highest level and develops vocabulary for academic subjects through thematic readings, interactive exercises, and self-tests.

The chapters and exercises are “scaffolded” so that what has been presented in previous chapters is reinforced progressively as the student moves through the book. A variety of exercises stimulates different learning styles and encourages cross-referencing of the words through different contexts. Self-tests and games in each chapter round out the exposure for each vocabulary word. Recognizing that today's students are residents of a visual culture, the fifth edition's new "Word Visions" feature calls on students to apply their vocabulary skills in image-oriented contexts.
