This book uses curricular content and middle-school lesson formats to help students transfer language learning to the classroom and meet testing requirements.

The language lessons teach students to associate and apply information to a variety of contexts and respond to academic/testing questions accurately. Students learn 1,555 words from the social studies, science, language arts, math, geography, political science, and history curricula. Age-appropriate articulation lessons with a language approach are included for the r, s, z, l, and th sounds.

The book targets eight essential language skills:

  • Vocabulary - using context to determine meaning, testing words, curricular vocabulary, and more
  • Comprehension - identifying flag words, identifying and understanding sequence words, identifying passive voice sentences, and more
  • Expression - asking questions, relating events, using complete sentences, and giving directions
