Teach English from the roots up with Jensen's Vocabulary's systematic program. As students learn Latin and Greek bases, prefixes, and suffixes, they'll learn how to spell a word from the "sum of its parts" and increase their ability to decode the definitions of words. Once the course is completed, students should have learned:
- How prefixes, suffixes and roots combine to make all kinds of words.
- How to figure out the spelling of a word by the parts that make it up.
- How to think in logical fashion about words and their meanings.
- A few roots that give them the keys to hundreds of words.
- How to read and understand as well as express themselves more concisely
Designed around a 5-day "spaced repetition" model, students begin with Lesson A, where they try to match definitions with words after they write out the words with the correct definition on a separate piece of paper to use a personal study sheet. The following three lessons feature various exercises to help students learn roots and meanings; on the fifth day students can review, study, or take a quarterly test. The first "A" lessons take approximately 20-30 minutes; the other lessons should not take more than 15 minutes per lesson. Weekly tests can take 20-30 minutes.
Four possible schedules are included for one-year, 18-months, two-years, and self-paced options. At approximately 30 minutes per lesson, five days per week, the course will take one-and-a-half years.
Reproducible for homeschool families and small classrooms with under 10 students. Line-listed answer keys. Grades 7-12. 353 pages, softcover.
