The World of Words not only teaches students the vocabulary they need for academic success, but also arms them with the skills they need to acquire new words independently for years to come. Through repetition and a focus on integrating three critical skills - dictionary use, context clues, and word elements - this best-selling text inspires students to take the first steps towards a lifetime of learning about language. Online audio clips help students hone pronunciation, and in-text practice exercises and sample sentences feature engaging topics such as college sports, current news topics, and pop culture. In addition, there is a wealth of instructor support materials, including pre-written tests for every chapter.

She served as a long-term consultant for Roosevelt University in Chicago and the Bureau of Education and Research. Currently, she is Professor Emerita of Northeastern Illinois University and President Elect of the Chicago Area Reading Association.
