We've just received our first shipment of Vocabulary Power Plus for College and Career Readiness Level One. Level One is intended for 9th grade.

Now, you may be thinking, "Only 9th Grade? Where are the other three?!?"

Well, if you're champing at the bit for grades 10, 11, and 12, don't fret; those books are coming hot on the heels of this blazing little firecracker.

And now that I'm done mixing my metaphors . . . let's talk about the book.

The new edition of Vocabulary Power Plus changes up the format a bit. There's a new question style — two-part multiple-choice — that lets students practice for the Common Core PARCC assessment.

The reading passages have also changed: there's now more nonfiction. Students need a lot of help with complex nonfiction texts, so Vocabulary Power Plus puts them on the road to college and career readiness.
