How would you visualize the word “pressure” or “collapse?” Not too hard. But what about “nevertheless?” Not so easy.

A video vocabulary series produced by Kinetic Media (www.kinmedia.com) and the William Sadlier publishing company helps students understand "nevertheless," using a rap song that reinforces its meaning of “in spite of” or “however.”

The “nevertheless’ video is one of nearly 900 vocabulary videos produced by Kinetic Media of Hartford, CT, for Sadlier’s new Vocabulary for Success textbook series. The series, designed for middle school students, takes a multimedia approach to learning. The books present the research-based word meanings for 870 words and incorporate an audio program, online dictionary and interactive games and quizzes, in addition to the 10- to 15-second videos. Each video includes the definition and usage of the word, as well as a short skit or activity or example of how that word gets used.
