Writing: Vocabulary Builder

Studies have shown that the most effective way to build a strong vocabulary is through reading a wide variety of texts across a variety of genres. 

While you can develop your vocabulary when you read and experience new words in context, you can also add depth and breadth to your vocabulary when you dedicate some time to the meaningful study of words.

Each semester, you will have the opportunity to build and develop your vocabulary through reading and direct word study.

A week of vocabulary building starts at 12:00 am on Saturday and concludes at 11:59 pm on the following Friday.

Each week, you can choose the method of vocabulary building you wish to complete. Your choices are:
