Welcome to Decent Exposure Volume I
Decent Exposure will help you teach words
explicitly and thoroughly, so that students will
remember and use them. The words have been chosen
on the basis of their frequency in serious
literature, the kind of books that students read
in school. Also, these words have synonyms,
antonyms, associations, components, and forms
that extend beyond just the single word that
might appear on a vocabulary list. By showing
how these words are used in several contexts,
students derive a 360 perspective as well as
model sentences from great literature.
