Coomber, James E.; Peet, Howard D.
This book presents a vocabulary development program that is designed for use in individualized programs as well as in more traditional, full-class settings. It is part of a series of seven books, corresponding to grades 6-12, which are carefully organized to ensure the comprehension and retention of valuable core words. The book consists of 16 units, including 4 review units (referred to as "Vocab Labs"). A typical unit introduces 20 words which come from the reading selection found in the unit. Students then familiarize themselves with the target words through a succession of exercises and activities. Once students' comprehension of the target words is established, a group of 10 to 20 "related words" is introduced. The book begins with a special unit on strategies for unlocking word meaning. Special features of the book include "Vocab Labs," advice on taking standardized vocabulary tests, two standardized vocabulary tests, a spelling handbook, a glossary for all target words, a pronunciation key and lined pages for students to use as their personal vocabulary log.
