2 TEACHERS' GUIDE COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Anywhere Learning System (ALS) Building Vocabulary VII is part of a scientific, research-based, comprehensive, and completely integrated curriculum for grade levels 1-8. A sequence of eight titles provides an extensive e-learning solution ideal for schools that want to use technology to improve their instructional process. COURSE FEATURES: All lessons contain a study guide, a practice and mastery test, and an essay or constructed response Many lessons include a variety of essay types such as descriptive, persuasive, expository, and letter writing. The ALS program consists of an Internet-based instructional management system with student assessment tools built in, and educators can test students on national, state, district, or local objectives because any set of standards can be added to the system. These courses are certified by MetaMetrics with a Lexile score. COURSE OBJECTIVES: The Basic Vocabulary courses provide instruction in basic phonemic principles (phonemic awareness), phonetic (phonics) and visual introduction to new words and word sounds, and multiple exposures to the use of words and word sounds. The student is provided an opportunity to use words in context and in language development exercises (vocabulary development). Emphasis is placed on phonics skills of syllabication, pronunciation, word definition, recognition of blends, digraphs, diphthongs, letters that have more than one sound and sight vocabulary development at each grade level. Dictionary and thesaurus skills are enhanced through vocabulary exercises that include word recognition skills, multiple meaning words, synonyms, antonyms, connotation and denotation, Latin and Greek root words, prefixes and suffixes, foreign terms and phrases, core vocabulary words, and special vocabularies common to standardized tests. 2

3 TEACHERS' GUIDE The ALS program uses three key skills (phonemic awareness, phonics, and vocabulary development) identified by the National Reading Panel as it directs students from beginning reading levels to more advanced reading skills utilizing a Four-Step Approach in each title series. COURSE CONTENT Course Name Number of Lessons Length of Course in Semesters Grade Level Lexile Measure Building Vocabulary VII L The Building Vocabulary titles develop skills in practical situations by utilizing a Four-Step Approach: Study Guide, Practice Test, Mastery Test, and Essay modules are used to define the instructional environment. The Study Guide module provides text- and graphics-based delivery of material that is reinforced by pictures and diagrams supported by a wealth of content. Study Guides teach the concepts and skills associated with each lesson. A number of the Study Guide pages have specific, interactive feedback that will assist the student in solving problems or understanding concepts. The Practice Test module allows the student to practice skills learned in the Study Guide section. The student has instant access to the study material for reference. In the Mastery Test module, the student takes a scored examination, electronically submits the test, and the results are recorded in the ALS Management System. The Essay module allows the student to compose individual, free-form answers to a wide variety of questions and problems.
