In this 3-week online course, learners will develop vocabulary skills and better reading comprehension by learning Greek and Latin word roots. This is also a great foundation for anyone learning medical terminology. No prior knowledge is required. Hand-outs will be provided as needed. Day 1: In this class, we will learn the following word roots: ped (foot); man, manu (hand); spec (see); and dict (speak). Day 2: In this class, we will learn the following word roots: ject (throw); sect (cut,...
Learners will improve their understanding of selected Greek and Latin roots. This knowledge should help them to accurately and quickly define terms with these roots in them. This should, in turn, improve their reading comprehension. This foundation is also a great asset to anyone studying medical terminology.
I have taught Greek and Latin word roots in Medical Terminology at the college level. I have also taught science at all grade levels in public schools, home schools, and college. My first college degree is in Secondary Education (grades 6-12) with four concentrations (including Biology, Earth Science, and Life Science). I am also certified as a EC-Grade 4 Generalist and a Grades 4-8 Generalist.
Learners may need extra time after class to complete their workbooks/hand-outs. Learners will benefit most if they read over the assigned materials prior to each class time.
NOTE: I do NOT receive additional benefits through commissions or the like. I am NOT an affiliate for any website or subscription company package NOR am I an owner of any online store. Each learner will need to purchase their own Greek and Latin word roots workbook. The specific workbook needed can be found at this website: <https://www.christianbook.com/greek-and-latin-roots/pd/151752?event=ESRCG>. Additional hand-outs will be provided as needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by informal assessment. Assignments will be provided before each class. The students will complete these assignments prior to or during class. The review tests provided in the workbook can also be used by parents as an informal assessment at home after class. Term quizzes, games, and reviews can be found at <https://quizlet.com/debgene8/folders/greek-and-latin-word-roots-1/sets>.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
