PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these vocabulary cards to give paired students an opportunity to discuss nuances in word meanings in a meaningful and structured discussion. Using these discussion cards, students internalize the concept of shades of meaning, learn some new vocabulary and practice new vocabulary in a meaningful way.

Eventually, students should be able to see how understanding this concept can also improve their writing by improving word choice.
