What is a robust vocabulary and why should students have a robust vocabulary?

Every individual has an active and passive vocabulary. Our active vocabulary are the words that we understand and use. Our passive vocabulary are the words that we understand but do not use. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced vocabulary tutorials for program participants in grades six through college. The purpose of these programs is to transition our program participants passive vocabulary to active vocabulary. By developing a more robust vocabulary an individuals reading and reading comprehension will improve.
