Product Description

This five-book series teaches junior and senior high school students words derived from the most important Greek and Latin roots. Every lesson introduces up to fifteen words derived from two or more classical roots. A dictionary-like format provides all the necessary information, including related forms of the word and sentences illustrating each word's correct usage. Special sections called "Nota Bene" provide information about etymologies and words that might be confused.

Drawings, illustrative sentences, and challenging exercises help students master the vocabulary they need to read works of literature and prepare for SAT's. Exercises based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, vocabulary in context, and sentence completions not only test students' mastery of definitions but also develop their familiarity with the format of comparable items on standardized tests. Other exercises offer practice in recognizing correct usage. Books D and E also contain an exercise that tests vocabulary in context for each lesson. Paperback, 101 pages.

    While my son was enrolled in a public online school this book was intended to be his 6th grade vocab book. We quickly discovered it was too complex for him to use.

    At a glance we really thought it would be good, and fun to learn all the root meanings. The problem for us was the fact that my son struggles with comprehension and it was too confusing. The lessons teach the root from Greek or Latin, and then also includes the meaning for each vocabulary word. Unlike other vocabulary workbooks, this introduced way too many new words for him. The fact that he could not use many of the words in every day conversations, or find them in what he was reading, it was too foreign to him.

    I have a younger son who is much more scholarly and will likely enjoy using this book.

    So I gave it a 4 based on it is an okay book and for the right student it would be great. For us it wasn't great.
    We ended up using Wordly Wise, which we have been very pleased with.

    My suggestion would be to spend a full 5 days working on each of the 16 lessons. We made flash cards and played games to enhance the experience. No test/quizzes included in this book. No additional teacher guide in this book.

    An basic understanding of Greek and Latin before the high school years should make biology a bit easier for my kids. It will also help them on the SAT. I am pleasantly surprised; they really enjoy learning these new words.

    The lessons are well laid out and the roots are pertinent to every day words. I was expecting something antiquated, but this is really a fantastic step after a regular spelling program. My daughter is enjoying it as well and recognizing roots in much of her reading.

    This is an easy curriculum for learning root words. And not a lot of planning on the parents part. We are currently using Book 6 and are loving it. My children {and myself} are gaining a greater understanding to the English language as well as the other languages that helped to form it.
