Interactive Vocabulary supplements a reading text at the lowest level and develops vocabulary for general subjects through thematic readings, interactive exercises, and self-tests.

Intended for students reading at the introductory grade reading level, the fourth edition of Interactive Vocabulary offers engaging readings on high-interest topics and keeps students interested while showing them how vocabulary is used in the context of a reading passage. The text encourages students to look for context clues to help them figure out the meaning of a word. An optional Web site with pronunciation offers additional exercises. 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.
