Task Exercise Overview Road Trip presents a written sentence with a single word missing, and shows 4 written words above the sentence. The student must choose the correct word to complete the sentence. Content Road Trip presents groups of words that focus on important linguistic and orthographic dimensions. In each group, the alternative answers challenge students in the relevant dimension. For example, alternate answers in the Basic Words and Academic Words groups have clear semantic differences from the correct answers (kitten and cookie; vaccine and vacuum), while the alternate answers for Compound Words and Prefixes groups may share a component word or morpheme, or have a similar spelling as the correct answer (retie and untie). The student works on each word group across multiple grade levels.
