Overview

This workbook is designed to help students develop vocabulary strategies and broaden their general vocabulary knowledge. Each unit features activities that preview the target vocabulary and teach word families and practice word forms. Each unit focuses on a different vocabulary development strategy and then offers practice in that strategy. Strategies featured in this workbook are: prefixes, suffixes, synonyms, antonyms, understanding words with multiple meanings, collocations, phrasal verbs, recognizing definitions in text, and word stems. The activities recycle the vocabulary in the reading passages.

The Forces of Nature workbooks combine high-interest readings with skills development activities. Each of the five workbooks features a different skills focus—reading, vocabulary, grammar, study skills, and multi-skill review with writing activities.

Each content-based workbook also focuses on a different force of nature—earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods, blizzards, and wildfires. These events were selected because they allow students to develop an understanding of natural events that threaten property, ways of life, and lives. Because information about preparing for a disaster is sometimes unavailable or not at a level that is understandable to some of today’s students, tips for surviving each force of nature are presented at the end of each workbook.
