Work Well for
Vocabulary From Classical Roots is a series of vocabulary workbooks that provide independent learning of Latin and Greek Roots for the student who enjoys completing their work in the workbook format.
Roots are grouped thematically with each of the sixteen lessons in every book introducing up to 15 words derived from two or more classical roots.
Each lesson begins with root words, their meanings and their forms. Then a variety of exercises are presented using literary, historical, and geographical references and based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, etc. to ensure mastery.
After every two lessons, a writing assignment is suggested, using lesson words, allowing the student to utilize and solidify what he has learned.
You can find answers in the answer key in the workbook, but if you would like more help, you may purchase the Teacher Key which complements and extends the series.
A valuable resource, the Teacher Key:
- provides tips for individual learning needs
- shows how to ensure that students are building upon earlier skills
- gives support for each lesson
- provides blackline masters to reinforce key words
- gives additional review activities and vocabulary games
- includes a glossary and answer key for the student books
A test booklet - with answers - is available also.
The original series is designed for grades 7-12 when students need to build vocabulary for writing assignments and college prep.
There is now also available a series of these thorough workbooks for children in grades 4-6. They layout is similar but the words and exercises are geared toward toward younger children.
