Program Details

This course is an eight-week word study class, designed to improve vocabulary skills for

elementary and middle school students. Through the study of Greek and Latin roots,

suffixes and prefixes, students will increase their vocabulary as well as their

understanding of the English Language. When students learn these building blocks it

becomes easy for them to recognize, decode and spell unfamiliar words that are related

to a known root. This knowledge will also provide students with the skills they need to

increase their understanding of technical vocabulary found in science, social studies and

many other content areas. Various assessment methods will be used in order to ensure

mastery, to include, weekly tests, class participation, writing prompts and weekly

homework assessments.
