Features and Benefits:
-Concepts are broken down into easily digestible lessons.
-Each chapter is written so the student can complete it in a single day (similar to our Panic Plan and 30 Days titles, but we aren’t stressing anything about prepping on a deadline!).
-Vocabulary is organized by theme (Words about Speaking, Words about the Arts, Words about Insults, Words about Fear, etc.).
-Quizzes are designed to be fun (crossword puzzles, word searches, fill-in-the blanks to humorous passages) so students can get lots of hands-on experience and so they won’t get bored.
