Publisher Description:

This is the fun way to learn new vocabulary! These popular, easy-to-use detective cases are suitable for Grades 5 - 12+. Students must identify the meaning of new vocabulary as they try to uncover the subtle clues hidden in the statements from witnesses and suspects. Each mystery requires careful reading, critical thinking, and synthesizing information to identify the innocent and guilty. The cases also develop observation skills, reading comprehension, deductive and inductive thinking skills. Learning to identify and evaluate evidence is the very heart of critical thinking. The vocabulary in these mysteries is taken from the Sat's most difficult word lists and top look-ups for Merriam Webster online dictionary.

Vocabulary Books 1 and 2 include 12 cases each through which you work using the clues and lists of vocabulary words. These are challenging scenarios that offer the words within a context without ever giving you the definition, so have a dictionary handy. Each case is two pages – the first page tells the story and offers clues; the second page lists new vocabulary with fill-in-the-blank sentences. Each activity incorporates 18 to 24 new vocabulary words that are used to find the right suspect. Find the culprit in each case as you analyze the words and determine the correct use, based on their application within the story and clues. The vocabulary in each case will challenge your student’s logic and strengthen their vocabulary skills.

I came across this looking for something to strengthen my older childrens' vocabulary. It seems entertaining, and it was inexpensive. If all goes well, I will purchase the second book.

CTD Vocabulary fun but challenging
Critical Thinking Detective Vocabulary is introducing many new words. I think it will be helpful on standardized test. Plus it is challenging to solve the mystery in each lesson.
