Each week a new set of 15 Latin or Greek root words (sometimes prefixes and suffixes) will be introduced and studied then we will play a game with the words on that same day to learn the root words. Latin and Greek roots word topics include science, medical terminology, legal terms, art, and much more. Approximately 60% of the English language derives from Latin and Greek root words. This ongoing class offers the potential to increase a learner's vocabulary by several hundred words,...
By learning root words each week, learners have the potential to increase their vocabulary by hundreds of words. Many of these root words are also roots in the romance languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Italian) so learning them can aid in the study of the romance languages as well as English.
I have been teaching English in both public school and online school now for nearly 20 years.
No homework. Each week will be a different 10 root words to learn the day of class. No class is a prerequisite for a previous class. Each class is individualized so students can come and go. However, I do have homework available upon request.
Leaner will not need any supplies other than their brain and a willingness to learn.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will avoid some root words involving anatomy.
I will provide the 15 words each week with their origin (Latin or Greek) and their meanings in class.
