I've been doing some Internet research on this same topic. I wanted to move our developmental reading classes from textbooks to vocabulary in context.

Here is a list of sites that I thought might be helpful:

Vocabulary.com <http://www.vocabulary.com/>
Word Safari vocabulary expeditions <http://home.earthlink.net/~ruthpett/safari/index.htm>
Reading Study Skills <http://www.smc.maricopa.edu/sub1/lac/rdg_study.html>
vocabulary links <http://home.earthlink.net/~ruthpett/safari/megalist.htm>
