One Day, a Fun Day for Vocabulary: Mini Course, Vocabulary Building.
Crist, Barbara
With emphasis on the exciting aspects of language learning, this vocabulary improvement mini-course aims at presenting words in ways that are relevant, communicative, and enjoyable for the college freshman. Advocating a multisensory approach to vocabulary that involves a "hear it, say it," then, "read it, write it" sequence, the mini-course offers eight pages of word activities organized according to the following format: words with stories associated with them; "a couple of roots that took," or words that are related to one another; interesting foreign words or phrases used in speech; and word games and oddities that require the student to coin new words or to interpret coined words.
