This workbook offers you two different activities from which to choose and includes a total of 32 different activity worksheets.

The first activity instructs your students to read a series of sentences and choose the correct vocabulary word from a word bank. There are 16 worksheets that fit this structure.

The second activity allows your students to read a series of sentences that each include a vocabulary word and challenges them to correctly identify the meaning and part of speech. Students will accomplish this goal by reading and identifying context clues that are found within each problem. With this activity, I encourage them to highlight the clues they used to come up with their definition. This benefits them in many ways such as giving them practice identifying important information in their college textbooks. There are 16 worksheets for this activity as well.

Answer keys are included for both activities. Note: The answer keys for the context clue worksheets do not contain every possible definition. Your students may come up with an alternate definition that also applies. I try to be as flexible as I can as long as their thought process is pointing them in the right direction. Use your own judgment.

My goal with this book is to help empower and encourage students, no matter at what level of vocabulary development or reading level, to improve their ability to read independently as well as develop a comprehensive vocabulary allowing them to articulate their thoughts more clearly not only verbally but also in the written word.
