This doesn't address those particular words but I like to use
www.freerice.com . It runs from level 1-60 (I have only gotten to 38),
but it offers words and multiple choice definitions. When you choose the
correct answer it donates 10 grains of rice to world hunger. If you get
the definition incorrect, it gives you the correct answer and then asks
you the word again later. It is a great way to increase and improve
vocabulary as well as use for other subject areas.

Subject: Question on teaching vocabulary

Our vice president in charge of Adult Ed forwarded me the following
email asking if I had any suggestions. He'd like to set up some type of
professional development for his instructors on teaching vocabulary.
Anybody have any ideas?

 >> >> Blake, It is an observation with our students, they do not have
the VOCABULARY knowledge when studying for the GED test's Science,
Social Studies & Language Arts, Reading sections THEN, those that are
preparing for the COMPASS test. They come across words that they just do
not know. For example, these come from the PE version of the Practice Test:
melancholy
constituent
immobilized
hybrid
abolitioist
tolerance
effacement
prospective

Is there a system for teaching vocabulary/lists of
suggested-words-one-might-need-to-know for high school/college level?<<
