Class Experience

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.
