This is a fill-out-as-you-learn workbook you can use with your middle school students for the essential academic vocabulary they need in order to be successful with reading and writing tasks, and other subject areas, as well.
Within it, the definition of a vocabulary term is given, with space for them to write their own definition, list examples, and also why it's important and how they may apply it.
The workbook is split up into sections:
-Terms for texts: theme, foreshadowing, mood, etc.
-Terms for writing: persuade, conclusion, compare vs. contrast, etc.
-Figurative language terms: simile, personification, etc.
-Types/parts of words: verbs, root word, prefix, etc.
