For English class, we're doing a vocab. review for seventh graders, as part of our teaching project. Should seventh graders know what inevitable means? What age should people know that word by? Thank you.

There's no reason why not. It's also a perfect word to break down and show kids how they can discern what unfamiliar words mean if they know common prefixes, root words, and suffixes.

in-evit-able
c.1430, from L. inevitabilis "unavoidable," from in- "not" + evitabilis "avoidable," from evitare "to avoid," from ex- "out" + vitare "shun," originally "go out of the way."
from http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?search=inevitable&searchmode=none

• English -

If seventh graders don't know the meaning of "inevitable," they should learn it because it's part of their lives.

For instance: If you cheat on a test, the consequences are inevitable.
