Targeted for upper middle and high school students, this resource could easily be used in a college writing class. I used this with my 6th graders although I did chunk it into groups of 4 words and taught them over several weeks.

The preview includes the cover, a list of the words taught, the introduction to the lesson, and a copyright page with contact information with the presentation theme and colors.
