Strategic vocabulary instruction through Greek and Latin roots
Vocabulary from Classical Roots® is ideal for students mastering a growing content-area vocabulary in social studies, science, literature, and mathematics – predominantly multisyllabic Greek- and Latin-based words. Strategic instruction helps students learn to unlock the meanings of thousands of words. As students transition from learning to read to reading to learn, they will develop a useful, transferable technique to make sense out of unfamiliar words.
Each lesson features 2-4 roots and 8-15 words derived from these roots. Words are presented with dictionary-style definitions, and all words are used in example sentences. Lists of “Familiar Words” and “Challenge Words” are provided for each root to help all students activate prior knowledge and keep advanced students on task. Exercises include matching synonyms, fill-in-the-blank, writing sentences, and more. Nota Benes sprinkled throughout the text enliven presentation and give interesting information on word history and additional derivations.
