About the Book

What does learning new words have to do with great writing? Everything.

Words are the bricks to build your ideas and clarify your thoughts to others – and whether you’re sculpting great phrases, great paragraphs, or great pieces of writing, your word know-how is critical to your success.

EB Conroy's Simpli­ ed Vocabulary Guide helps you learn almost 800 must-know words for academic writing — including pronunciations, de­finitions, and examples of how to use the words in sentences. Words are presented in 32 lists, with 22 to 25 words per list in an easy—to—use format – giving you a straightforward weekly guide for your public, private, or home school.

Written by a college writing professor, this book has been used for years in high school writing courses, college-level writing courses, and AP English Language and Composition courses across the US – both on-the-ground and online. And its easy format makes EB Conroy’s Simpli­ ed Vocabulary Guide a great resource for parents, teachers, and students

– in the classroom and at home.

As part of the Simpli­ ed Writing series, this book is a helpful guide and key resource to make your plan be an excellent writer complete.
