In this class, we will work from the vocabulary workbook The Joy of Vocabulary by Norman Levine, completing five chapters together. I have used this workbook in English classes for two decades and consider it the best tool I've ever come across for expanding understanding of the English language.

Students will: Expand their understanding of the way English is formed Learn several Latin and Greek roots and prefixes and the way they work in words Be challenged to use new words in context Practice skills with words like concise writing and applying meaning logic to make analogies (example: entomology is to insects as astronomy is to stars)
Each week, students will complete one chapter in the workbook The Joy of Vocabulary. This class will cover chapters one, two, three, four and seven.
Each student will need to purchase a NEW copy of The Joy of Vocabulary by Normal Levine. For all students in the class, I will provide a link to purchase the correct edition.
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
