Wordwise: Vocabulary, Spelling & Word Building Activities aims to enhance students' use of a wide range of vocabulary and to increase their understanding of the derivation and origin of words. The words in the book have been chosen to consolidate student knowledge of commonly used, mature vocabulary and to introduce more specialised vocabulary to extend students' repertoire of language.

The book is divided into forty units with each unit focusing on one aspect of vocabulary development. The focus may be technical e.g. prefixes, homophones, possessives etc; or related to context e.g. investigation words, number words, Australian words, legal words etc. Wordwise is activity based to encourage students to use the words so that they can remember them more easily.

Each unit consists of a list of keywords followed by activities using the keywords and related vocabulary focusing on:

  • Meaning
  • Use in context
  • Word derivation and origin
  • Spelling hints

Answers for these activities are provided in the back of the book.
