A thematically organized vocabulary program based on Greek and Latin roots. Each of the 16 lessons features 2-3 roots and 8-15 words derived from these roots. Words are presented with dictionary-style definitions, and all words are used in example sentences. Lists of "Familiar Words" and "Challenge Words" are provided for each root to help all students activate prior knowledge and keep advanced students on task.
