Overview


The Scholastic Student Thesaurus has been revised and updated for the first time since 2002. The new edition features 4 new pages of backmatter, and all entries have been reviewed by a lexicographer.

Revised and updated, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus is an innovative, easy-to-use title for students in grades 6-12 (savvy 5th graders, too!). It was created for the many kids who get frustrated when they try to use a thesaurus. If they look up a word and "it's not there," many students will give up rather than turn to the index in the back of their book to redirect their search. The Scholastic Student Thesaurus's innovative same-page index solves this problem. In addition, the new edition features 4 brand-new pages of backmatter about language and how words evolve.

Provides synonyms and antonyms for thousands of English words.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Featuring a significantly expanded pool of entries over its 1998 edition, Scholastic Children's Thesaurus, this volume takes a unique approach with its "on-the-page index" offering cross-references for more difficult words. Each entry features the term, part of speech, definition, and synonyms (in bold type). Though the previous edition offered more extensive information about the usage of each synonym, this edition widens students' knowledge of word connections, made clear through the visibility of each handy spread-specific index. The easy-to-use, expanded introduction will be a valuable resource to students who take the time to read it. The colorful illustrations of the previous edition have given way to more solid information; overall, this edition has less flash and more substance than its predecessor.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    THE WRITE STUFF

    Complex and obsolete words are eliminated to suit the vocabulary of students age 10 and up in this comprehensive, yet fairly slim, tome. Each entry contains synonyms with cross-references to point students toward additional word options. A seven-page introduction gives a detailed usage overview for beginners, but the clear and concise format requires little explanation. This thesaurus' most innovative device is the creation of a unique on-the-page index that lets students search for a word that is not a main entry; it's a welcome antidote for frustration with back page indexes. The Scholastic Student Thesaurus is a worthy addition to any elementary and middle-school student reference shelf, and an excellent companion to the Scholastic Children's Dictionary.
