Overview

Flemming teaches key vocabulary terms based on the premise that students learn best by seeing words repeatedly in different contexts—not through rote memorization. These vocabulary terms appear in increasing levels of difficulty throughout the text and have been carefully selected to highlight essential words that students will frequently encounter in their readings. Extensive practice opportunities appear in each chapter, in addition to end-of-unit tests. Plus, students can take advantage of a CD-ROM featuring over 800 additional vocabulary exercises.

"This book solves the problem that many vocabulary students face. Usually they learn the words but can't figure out how and when to use them. This solves that problem."

Meet the Author

After receiving her B.S. at Southern Connecticut State University, where she was certified as a teacher of secondary reading, Laraine Flemming went on to earn an M.A. in English literature at Boston College and a Ph.D. in American literature at the State University of New York in Buffalo. During her career, Flemming has taught students from elementary to graduate school covering subjects as varied as reading and writing, American literature, time management, speed reading, and study skills. She began writing textbooks while working as Director of the Reading and Writing Center at Dean Junior College. In need of a reading textbook that had lots of exercises combined with genuinely thought-provoking readings, Flemming decided to write her own. You can contact Laraine Flemming by emailing her at laflemm@comcast.net or by visiting her website at www.laflemm.com.
