Summary

Academic Vocabulary supplements a reading text at the most advanced level and develops vocabulary for academic subjects through thematic readings, interactive exercises, and self-tests. This visually appealing worktext introduces words in context and reinforces their meanings through self-tests, writing assignments, collaborative projects, and games. The chapters and exercises are "scaffolded" so that material presented in previous chapters is reinforced progressively as the student moves through the book. The exercises in Academic Vocabulary stimulate different learning styles and encourage cross-referencing of the vocabulary words. Recognizing that today's students are citizens of a visual culture, the fifth edition's new "Word Visions" feature calls on students to apply their vocabulary skills in image-oriented contexts.
