Words Matter features a conceptual approach to teaching mid- to high-level vocabulary. Each chapter introduces ten words linked together by theme, such as humor, light, heat, and friendship. This common thread helps students to compare and contrast words related in meaning or structure. As a result, students have multiple opportunities to form connections and anchor each new word and its meaning in their long-term memory. Readings also focus on topics of social and historical importance so that students expand their cultural literacy along with their vocabulary.

After receiving her B.S. at Southern Connecticut State University, where she was certified as a teacher of secondary reading, Laraine Flemming went on to earn an M.A. in English literature at Boston College and a Ph.D. in American literature at the State University of New York in Buffalo. During her career, Flemming has taught students from elementary to graduate school covering subjects as varied as reading and writing, American literature, time management, speed reading, and study skills. She began writing textbooks while working as Director of the Reading and Writing Center at Dean Junior College. In need of a reading textbook that had lots of exercises combined with genuinely thought-provoking readings, Flemming decided to write her own.
