Ages 13 through 19. Use this book to teach vocabulary to adolescents with vocabulary deficits. Each lesson includes an informational article with 10 key vocabulary words. Words commonly used in newspapers and within the secondary school curriculum are emphasized. The articles help students focus on word meanings as they learn about important topics such as finding employment, protecting the environment, protecting the environment, protecting the rights of others, and reacting to social interaction problems appropriately.
After listening to each article, students respond to questions related to the information presented and the meaning of the target vocabulary words. Worksheet activities challenge students to use the target vocabulary words, to think of synonyms, to use contextual information, and to give precise word meanings. All of the activity worksheets may be reproduced.
The activities build vocabulary, verbal reasoning, and critical thinking skills relevant to the academic curriculum and the daily living needs of students. Speech-language pathologists and specialists in learning disabilities will find this to be a valuable resource. The book can also be used to help second language learners acquire vocabulary relevant to success within the classroom.
