Outstanding Vocabulary Building Program May 18, 2001
This is an excellent resource for challenging your student in vocabulary. Each lesson has 5 sections. The first involves identifying the definition of the word (multiple choice). The second involves discerning the correct/incorrect usage of each word in a sentence (multiple choice). This is actually my favorite part of the weekly unit, as some of the exercises really challenge the student to think through the examples. There are exercises related to identifying which vocabulary word fits in place of words given in a sentence, background of words, and a puzzle which requires the student to provide the word that is defined. I strongly suggest the use of the answer key, and caution that in the first section of each lesson, the multiple choice answers are provided immediately following the exercises...if your student likes shortcuts, he/she will probably find this one...I managed this by blacking out that section of the lesson. Otherwise, I think this is really a great program for a very small cost.
