Wacky Words and Humble Homophones Bootcamp
We are going to look at words that are often mixed up due to similar meanings or spellings or sounds.
US Grade 5 - 8
This course is a 3-day bootcamp that will examine pairs or groupings of words that are often mixed up in their usage in written or spoken language. My teaching style is engaging and participatory. I strive to create a classroom environment that has a serious and comfortable sense of purpose. Learners do not need any previous experience or knowledge. I will introduce each pair or grouping of words and then encourage each student to take calculated risks. We will practice the vocabulary words...
Students will improve their understanding of various English words in context.
