Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
By learning one hundred plus of both Latin and Greek root words, each student has the potential to understand at least five words per root word learned, meaning after this course, each student could possibly increase their vocabulary by five hundred words.
Under the pen name of Cleave Bourbon, I have completed and published 6 fantasy novels and I have three more in development (I usually have at least three writing projects going at all times.) I have been teaching English in both public school (English 1-4) and online for over 15 years. I have also earned a B.A in English and Culture and a M.A. in English and Literature. 
Homework Offered
A homework assignment for each set of 25 root words will be provided.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
This class utilizes GIMKIT games to enhance understanding. The game gives the teacher a report that shows a percentage of how each student performed at matching the root words with it's meaning. (It's an exam masquerading as a fun game!)
Grades Offered
 3 files available upon enrollment
A list of prefixes, suffixes and the 100 most common Greek and Latin root words are provided as attachments and should be printed out for class as we will use them often.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
