The Gold workbook takes the tedium out of language and analytical exercises! It is clever and imaginative. There are two vocabulary exercises, one graphic organizer, and a research or creative writing activity for each of Gold’s prose selections. The vocabulary usage exercises often mimic the style of the great authors. Practice exercises with synonyms/antonyms/homonyms, word analogies, and tests of context are witty and instructive. The Workbook Answer Guide is included in the Teacher’s Edition.
