Summary

This is an alphabetized list of definitions of terms that are used in the Literacy Bookshelf. The first time a term is used in a module, it is linked to this database so that you have access to the definition at the time you need it. Because there are so many defined terms in the Bookshelf, they have been grouped together for convenience in this book. However, you will find the definitions, known as concept modules, most useful in context.
