Vocab Ahead

Vocab Ahead would be an appropriate site for gifted students from 3rd grade and up.  English/Language Arts teachers of secondary students would also be interested in using this site.  It is designed to prepare students for the SAT and ACT tests.  However, anyone who is interested in advancing his or her vocabulary skills would enjoy the free features on this site.  After registering, a teacher can design individualized lists of words.  Students can view short videos using the words in context, practice learning them with flash cards, and take quizzes.  The customized lists can be embedded into a teacher’s website or blog.  In addition, students can create their own videos for words that can be uploaded to the site.  For this reason, I would advise the teacher to preview any of the videos he or she chooses to add to a list.
