Word Journeys is designed to develop and reinforce students' academic English vocabulary.

The vocabulary words are taken from Averil Coxhead's Academic Word List, which is a research-generated list of the most common academic words found in textbooks.

- Controlled nonfiction reading selections place vocabulary in context.
- Word study activities address multiple meaning words, word forms, collocations, and morphology.
- Scaffolded writing activities help students develop and refine their ideas.
- Assessments track students' progress and mastery.
