Revised and updated, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus is an innovative, easy-to-use title for students in grades 6-12 (savvy 5th graders, too!). It was created for the many kids who get frustrated when they try to use a thesaurus. If they look up a word and "it's not there," many students will give up rather than turn to the index in the back of their book to redirect their search. The Scholastic Student Thesaurus's innovative same-page index solves this problem. In addition, the new edition features 4 brand-new pages of backmatter about language and how words evolve.
