Class Experience

Students will be able to figure out the meaning of new words based on roots and prefixes. Students will have a basic understanding of what etymology is and why it is important. 
I've always been interested in etymology as I am an avid reader and English-lover. I studied etymology at the university level and have my bachelor's degree in English and journalism. 
Students will have 2 worksheets to complete. Worksheet #1 is due at the start of class 2 and worksheet #2 is due at the start of class 4.
Students will need to complete the attached PDFs.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will be giving feedback to students on their homework. 
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
