Challenge your students to improve their vocabulary with high level Power Vocabulary words. This resource is a monthly assignment that spans the course of a school year from September through April. It is a great tool for class work; it can also be used as an independent activity for homework or enrichment. The pacing of the lessons compliment other items covered in a middle school classroom: context clues through definition, restatement, example, contrast, as well as a review of parts of speech. Monthly tests are included! You can also download flipcharts that review the words and match them to images each month. Students love to be in charge of leading the class through learning the words and pronouncing them properly. This assignment is very rigorous and challenging for the students, with a final reflection that will have them admitting the powerful impact that vocabulary will have on their futures. All items are done in Word and can be manipulated to change the goals, due dates and point value of the assignments.
