Middle School vocabulary instruction focuses on preparing students with strategies to unlock the meaning of words they will encounter in content area texts, literature, and high-stakes-tests. We will use book 5 for one level group in class and 7 for the other level group, depending upon student level. Parents will determine student levels by looking at course word lists. Classes will progress to books 6 and 8 next year.
