The Word by Word Vocabulary Development Program presents vocabulary through lively, full-color illustrations and an outstanding array of innovative support materials. The unique conversational approach of the Word by Word Picture Dictionaries gives students communication practice with every word on every page and provides students with the key vocabulary they need to know in a wide range of relevant topics and situations. Presents 3,000+ words, organized into 100 thematic units, on topics such as Personal Information, The Home, The Environment, School Subjects, Extracurricular Activities, and Space Exploration. Model conversations depict situations in which people use the words in meaningful communication. Students create new conversations using the vocabulary in the unit. Writing and discussion questions encourage students to relate the vocabulary and themes to their own lives, helping them to get to know each other word by word.Molinsky, Steven J. is the author of 'Word by Word Picture Dictionary', published 1993 under ISBN 9780132782357 and ISBN 0132782359.
