Using new words. The activities in this 28-lesson unit give students practice in finding new word meanings and alternate words to use in place of tired, repetitive ones.
- Will a WAVE always get you wet? What else could it do?
- On a train, what do you do in a BERTH?
Each exercise requires the use of the dictionary. When completed, students should be able to replace worn-out words with more precise synonyms. They will know how to find alternate words in the dictionary, better understand multiple meanings, and maybe even discover a fascination for unusual words, their origin, and meanings.
