Impact Of Root Learning On Reading
To be successful in content-area reading—the reading of textbooks and research materials of all kinds—students must possess a protean reading and writing vocabulary. What is the most effective way for a student to learn vocabulary in a strategic manner? By mastering a sequenced set of high-frequency Latin and Greek word elements through direct instruction, the student gains a firm grasp of thousands of related-pattern words.
By using Latin and Greek Roots: Teaching Vocabulary Using Hands-On Activities and Common Objects, the student, under the direction of a tutor or teacher, will master a comprehensive set of root words through multisensory, discovery-based learning—an approach that provides the learner with long-term knowledge retention and application. In addition, the student will practice the Latin and Greek word parts in word lists for analysis, as well as in the context of textual information for balanced study.
Description of the Lessons
Latin and Greek Roots comprises 40 lessons that feature high-frequency Latin roots or Greek combining forms. The lessons are a scripted discussion between the teacher and students that leads to the introduction of a new Latin or Greek word part.
The teacher can prepare to use this program in the following ways: First, the teacher can administer Appendix A’s Pre-/Posttest assessment to the students to determine the students’ background knowledge of Latin and Greek word elements. Second, the teacher can begin to collect materials for use in teaching the 40 lessons. (Consult Appendix C: Materials for a complete list of materials needed.) Finally, the teacher can also peruse the 40 lessons to become more familiar with the sequence and structure of each lesson.
