VOCABULARY BUILDER SATs
Vocabulary words from the novel THE READER (Pages 105-218)
(45 words, definitions, synonyms)
All of the vocabulary words listed in this unit appear frequently in the novel with several, if not all, of them being examined on past SATs.
I find that developing vocabulary in conjunction with reading literature provides a better understanding over the alternative of trying to memorize vocabulary in isolation from its contextual setting. According to the CCSS for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies Appendix A, developing a rich vocabulary is best done through repeated exposure of words in a variety of contexts – not simply memorizing vocabulary word lists.
