The Word Book helps teachers plan and implement lessons on vocabulary content. It categorizes 12,500 high-frequency words in easy-to-read charts that are organized by subject and typically list related nouns, adjectives, and verbs in adjacent columns. This format helps students understand how different words are commonly used together. For example, a shoulder may be broad or narrow, and it can lift, shrug, raise, or turn.
The Word Book includes:
- Ten types of graphic organizers
- Two-page rubric for developing vocabulary
- 348 pages
The Word Book is aligned with NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) and IRA (International Reading Association) standards.
