Description

Class Experience

In this course, students will:
1) Explain how Greek and Roman history has shaped the modern world.
2) Identify words that are derivatives of Greek and Latin roots.
3) Apply vocabulary to conversational speech.
Students will be practicing the skills we learned at least once after each class meeting, including (but not limited to):
-Dictionary skills practice
-Root word vocabulary practice
-Short passages on Greek & Roman myths or history, using root word vocabulary

Work outside of class will take 1 hour or less.
Learners will need the following items: -A device that can read PDF files (for HW assignments). -A notebook for recording in-class (and HW) exercises. -A pen or pencil -A pack of 3 x 5 index cards. -1 large Ziploc bag (for storing index cards) -Red & green markers or colored pencils
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There will be weekly vocabulary checks to monitor student understanding and a creative writing project to evaluate root word applications.  Time for working on project in-class will be provided.  

Percentage scores (letter grades) will be available upon request.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
--To assess student comprehension of root use, I will be utilizing the Kahoot app weekly.  Students must have access to a second device for Kahoot.  I will be using screen share for the Kahoot questions.
--Dictionary.com will be screen shared to demonstrate the application of etymologies in the English language.  Some students may be asked to look up definitions on Dictionary.com in class or for homework.
