Weekly lessons in the student activity book are based on root families, and students are encouraged to make cross-curricular connections. Elements 1 covers 25 Latin & Greek root families, including roots such as log, fer, reg, dic, ten, ven, fin, scrib and more. Lessons are specifically designed to be fun and engaging, and include fill-in-the-blank, "stair steps," and "magic square," type activities. Students will learn how English words are built and discover strategies to determine pieces of meaning embedded in words.
The teacher's guide provides a day-by-day guide to teaching each lesson, as well as assessments and blackline masters. Elements teacher's guides provide an "advance preparation" section that reviews important prefixes and suffixes. Objectives and the materials needed for the lesson are listed at the outset, with a "unit at a glance" chart that quickly illustrates what's being taught on what day. Each day's lesson includes teaching instructions with classroom direction, scripted questions, discussion guidance, and model lessons for teaching the roots and affixes. Included weekly, semester, and year-end tests are provided. Reduced-size student pages with the answers overlaid, word lists, and assessment answers are also included.
