Each subject uses its own content-specific vocabulary that can be overwhelming for the student just introduced to the subject. Ease the transition, and free up students to spend their time really learning the material-instead of the vocabulary-with Vocabulary in the Content Areas. Students will build associations with word anchors, use word study skills such as affixes and rots, use parts of speech, and context clues to help acclimate themselves to the climate of academic and subject-specific vocabulary. A variety of exercises are included, with multiple choice, restated questions, fill-in-the-blank and puzzles. World History for Middle School covers the ancient civilizations, the medieval and middle ages, expansion and social issues, World War II and other aspects of the twentieth century. 128 reproducible pages with answer key, softcover.
