Helps students build and use strong vocabularies
Interactive Vocabulary makes the study of vocabulary enjoyable. Through thematic readings, self-tests, and interactive exercises, students can apply their skills to writing, personal experience, art, and many other formats that generate excitement about improving their vocabularies. Each activity plays on individual learning styles to help students learn new words in a large number of contexts.
The Sixth Edition retains the book’s strong visual appeal, as well as its philosophy that an essential part of learning vocabulary is repeated exposure to a word. As a result, it provides eight to ten exposures to each vocabulary word throughout the text, plus additional instances in the review section and flash and word map activities throughout the book. With new readings and words, this edition of Interactive Vocabulary offers greater exposure to a more diverse wordbase than ever before.

Amy E. Olsen grew up in a book-loving household in San Diego, California. While in elementary school, she and her brother competed to read the most books during the library’s summer-reading program, and whenever there was a question about a topic at the dinner table, a set of encyclopedias was within an arm’s reach. She earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in English from San Diego State University. She has taught a variety of courses including reading, composition, film, and literature in traditional and online classrooms. Her interests include traveling, hiking, bicycling, reading, gardening, taking photographs, and watching movies. She enjoys combining these hobbies while exploring the world; she has visited every continent and dreams of eventually traveling to every country. She has written four textbooks: Reading Now, Interactive Vocabulary, Active Vocabulary, and Academic Vocabulary. The three vocabulary books came out in sixth editions in 2016.
