Part of the "Wiley Keys to Success" series, this title provides tips, activities, grammar clues, and various strategies for helping students expand their knowledge of the English language. It provides 7 Keys to Success, which breaks down the best way for readers to remember the meaning of and the proper context in which to use certain words. From the history of our language, to using context clues to looking at the roots of words to using the best words in a particular context, this educational book manages to tackle what is not always considered a fun topic in an upbeat, lively way. This tool would be a great resource in a upper elementary or middle school classroom, but it would also be valuable as a secondary or additional tool for parents to go through with their child. And most important, this educational tool sets the stage for young learners to continue to build their vocabularies as they grow. 2004, John Wiley and Sons, Ages 10 up.
