Word Wisdom

Word Wisdom®

Helps students to take ownership of their English vocabulary and learn more than 300 words each year. The series enables learners to unlock the meaning of new words in context, process new words through activities that reinforce meaning, and use this vocabulary through activities that access higher thinking skills.

The course is highly structured and is organized into:

  • 30-word units at each level
  • Units divided into three steps: Unlock, Process, and Apply
  • Final sections in each unit which focus on review and assessment

With Word Wisdom® students will:

  • Discover the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases, use context clues, analyze meaningful word parts, and consult reference materials
  • Demonstrate understanding of word relationships and nuances in word meanings
  • Acquire and use general academic and domain-specific words and phrases for listening, speaking, reading, and writing
