Vocabulary in Action

All > Spelling / Vocabulary > VOCABULARY PROGRAMS / INSTRUCTION > Vocabulary in Action

A well-constructed vocabulary program from the Voyages in English people. Word lists are research-based and selected for frequency, occurrence and relevance. Coverage includes pronunciations, meanings, identification of parts of speech, antonyms, and synonyms. The numerous and varied activities include words in context, word meaning, word usage, related words, and word building. Special features include word etymology, mnemonic devices, historical facts, word trivia, and word origin. Pretests and posttests help you determine the program's benefit. There are fun activities within the book and access to online games and reviews. Tests can be taken online (or printed from online masters with Teacher Guide) Whew! Do you think anyone will notice that the books themselves are a bit plain? Student Books are more or less self-instructional with nine chapters. Each chapter includes two word lists plus a list of challenge words, with ten exercise pages per chapter. An interesting starting point for each chapter is trying to figure out the word from the reading context prior to the definitional activities. This is good practice and skill-building for standardized tests. A good mix of activities and little story segments within the activities keep things interesting. The Teacher Guides are replicas of the Student Books with answers filled in plus a few introductory and guideline-giving pages at the beginning. Although the teacher's books are not expensive, they may not be necessary particularly at the lower levels as the answers are fairly easy to figure out. However, the access code for being able to print and edit the tests from the website is included with the TG. Other activities games and reviews are available from the website without any code access. These activities are more utilitarian (word searches and crosswords) but they do provide a little more excitement than the same activities in paper form. 124 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
