FOR INSTRUCTORS

Words Count

ISBN: 9781285436128
Laraine Flemming's WORDS COUNT, Second Edition, teaches key vocabulary terms based on the premise that students learn best by seeing words repeatedly in different contexts-not through rote memorization. These vocabulary terms appear in increasing levels of difficulty throughout the text, and have been carefully selected to highlight essential words that students will frequently encounter in their readings. Extensive practice opportunities appear in each chapter, in addition to end-of-unit tests.
