• Unit 3: Reading More – Describing

    In Unit 3, you'll learn how adjectives are used to add a description to the things we read and write. Building your vocabulary with descriptive words will help you explain yourself more clearly and understand more of what you read. In academic reading and writing, it's important to know many describing words to both understand what we read and write for a college-level audience. In this unit you'll practice recognizing and using adjectives and adverbs, and see how these words can offer more detail about a topic. This unit concludes with a WebQuest activity where you'll build your vocabulary of describing words.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
