Class experience

US Grade 6 - 8
This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of Greek and Latin root words and will be able to apply this information to deciphering unknown words.
I have been teaching middle school Reading and Language Arts for more than 18 years.  I specialize in reading skills/strategies, teaching writing, and working with students at their own individual levels.
Homework Offered
Learners will have an optional (but strongly recommended) follow up activity after each session to help them review and practice the meanings of the new root word! These may include Flipgrid, Nearpod, graphic organizers, drawings, games, etc.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Paper and pencil will be needed for this course.  I would recommend a composition book so all notes/activities can stay together.
