Good product but needs teacher guide.
September 21, 2012
This book will definitely improve your student's vocabulary and sentence variety. However, I would highly recommend buying the teacher's guide with this book. The teacher's guide offers a variety of activities to encourage vocabulary usage and explains many of the vocabulary words and activities in the student book.
This program was to difficult for me to even teach it. I looked over it so many times and understood it, but thought it was extremely difficult to teach much less help my son understand. I let him look it over. You could definitely understand the concepts, but we wanted something that builds on a word and this seemed to complicated.
Having a background in Greek and Latin roots is valuable for SAT/ACT as well as for future academic success. This book is simple and straightforward. It is arranged in related groups to relate the roots to each other. It's a quick addition to our curriculum that makes a big impact.
As a homeschooling mother of nine I highly recommend this course for anyone preparing their children for mastery of the English language. My eldest son who is a sophomore in college says it has helped him tremendously to learn the root meanings of English words. All my children complete books A-E in high school level studies.
