"The vocabulary words in Defining Breaking Dawn have very little overlap with the vocabulary words in the previous three Defining Twilight series. Defining Breaking Dawn has 40 four-page chapters:- The first page of each chapter lists 8 vocabulary words with page references to Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn. Students refer to Breaking Dawn, read each word in context, and attempt to define it. - The second page of each chapter provides the actual definitions along with useful synonyms, Latin word parts, and memorization tools. - The third page presents SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT drills to memorize and integrate the definitions of the new words. - The fourth page gives clearly delineated solutions to the drills. Every 5 chapters there is a quiz to review andintegrate material. Every 20 chapters there is a review of all of the Eclipse vocabulary words in the previous 20 chapters. Quiz solutions and a Glossary of all of the book's vocabulary words, including synonyms, are at the back of the book. 200 of the 320 primary vocabulary words in Defining Breaking Dawn will be new to the Defining series; the remaining 120 primary vocabulary words have a high frequency of occurrence on the standardized tests"--
