In this three book series, students will determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple–meaning words and phrases by using context clues, analyzing word parts and word definitions, and using the vocabulary words in a variety of exercises.

Each book contains twelve 8–page units in an easy–to–use format:

  • Each unit opens with a reading passage that presents the twelve vocabulary words that will be focused on throughout the unit
  • Word definitions and practice using the new words
  • Vocabulary strategies developed by using:
  • Vocabulary in context
  • Word parts
  • Parts of speech
  • Multiple–meaning words

Each unit ends with sample test questions.
Life Skills Words (RL 4-6) – Build vocabulary used in everyday life situations.
Work Readiness Words (RL 6-8) – Build vocabulary to find, interview, and keep a job.
Academic Preparation (RL 6-8) – Build the science and social studies vocabulary needed to succeed on any of the HSE tests.
